Getting descriptions for my cloned repos, I'm banned before getting the job done

I have a directory of repositories that were cloned from GitHub.

I want to get the description for each repository so that I can create a markdown file with the descriptions.

Despite using extremely low rate limits ( 1 request per second, 1 worker/no concurrency), I am banned for >1 hour, after only ~50 description requests.

I am authenticated and I used GHauth.

I used this Octokat-based package:

https://www.npmjs.com/package/gh-description

https://github.com/RichardLitt/gh-description/blob/master/index.js

I used this rate limiter:

https://www.npmjs.com/package/p-queue
