#8629 HyperKitty is using a deprecated GitHub API
Closed: Duplicate a year ago by smooge. Opened a year ago by abompard.

GitHub recently sent us this message:

Hi @FedoraInfra,

On February 6th, 2020 at 00:07 (UTC) your application (Fedora Mailman) used an access token (with the User-Agent python-requests/2.9.1) as part of a query parameter to access an endpoint through the GitHub API:

https://api.github.com/user

Please use the Authorization HTTP header instead as using the `access_token` query 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 https://developer.github.com/changes/2019-11-05-deprecated-passwords-and-authorizations-api/#authenticating-using-query-parameters for more information.

Thanks,
The GitHub Team

It's likely that the library that does social authentication in HyperKitty needs to be upgraded to use more recent APIs.


I think this is blocked on us moving to a newer mailman3/hyperkitty.

Perhaps we should just close this and note it on the ticket for that?
