To create a key, 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.
We appreciate your support in helping Boa's data collection efforts!
