Is there a special procedure for moving an existing nbdev project to a different git repo, or transferring ownership?

Hi I transferred the ownership of one of my nbdev projects to a new owner. I was wondering if there is a procedure for this because I am seeing now the CI/CD pipeline fails. It fails with

Check we are starting with clean git checkout
Trying to strip out notebooks
Check that strip out was unnecessary
 M nbs/00_core.ipynb
 M nbs/06_tabular.ipynb
!!! Detected unstripped out notebooks
!!!Remember to run nbdev_install_git_hooks
Error: Process completed with exit code 1.

even though I have run nbdev_install_git_hooks successfully (several times now)

I was wondering if this maybe caused by me not initializing my new repo correctly.
