Trouble with how to start a hotfix in git basics task challenge. I believe I have the right answer

It's asking for a hotfix start, and my answer has been {git flow hotfix start "signup_bug."} but it says it's incorrect. It says I have the wrong name to use, even when I copied "signup_bug." straight from the question, it still says I am wrong. I believe I have it right, but not sure how I'm wrong.

There is a typo in this challenge -- the period/dot should be outside of the quotes; it is a regular period to end the sentence, not part of the hotfix name. Also don't surround the name with quotes.

Edit: I have contacted support regarding this issue. Thank you, Jonathan Brown.

the correct answer is git flow hotfix start signup_bug
