I just received the following email from GitHub:
On February 4th, 2020 at 06:50 (UTC) your application (forum.image.sc) used an access token (with the User-Agent Faraday v1.0.0) as part of a query parameter to access an endpoint through the GitHub API:
Please use the Authorization HTTP header instead as using the
access_tokenquery parameter is deprecated.
Depending on your API usage, we’ll be sending you this email reminder once every 3 days for each token and User-Agent used in API calls made on your behalf.
Just one URL that was accessed with a token and User-Agent combination will be listed in the email reminder, not all.
Visit Deprecated APIs and authentication | GitHub Developer Guide for more information.

Is this something that needs to be changed in my forum’s configuration? Or is an update to the Discourse code needed? Or is something else going on here?
