Boa Needs Your GitHub Tokens. Would you help?

You were sent a group email from http://boa.cs.iastate.edu/boa/.

Dear Boa users,

We are in the process of updating dataset from Github. We are using Github APIs for querying metadata and facing the problem of Github API's rate limit: https://developer.github.com/v3/rate_limit/

To overcome this, we need multiple Github API tokens to query Github concurrently.

If you are using Github, please consider donating a token using this form: http://goo.gl/forms/urYIco2tdG

Note that this token will allow us to access Github public information using GitHub's API as your user, but will not allow us to make any changes to your GitHub account or view your private data.

To create such a token, go to the following URL (while logged in): https://github.com/settings/tokens/new

Next, de-select all checkboxes (this is the default). Then CHECK the one labeled 'public_repo'. Finally, give a description to the token and click 'Generate Token'.

You can see here for a list of your tokens: https://github.com/settings/tokens

If at some point in the future you wish to no longer allow Boa to use your token, you can simply revoke it.

Please do feel free to forward this request to help us out. We appreciate your support in helping Boa's data collection efforts!
