UI: "New personal access token" repo:status access? unclear

It’s unclear what “Access commit status” means.

I had to RTFM to see that repo:status “Grants read/write access to public and private repository commit statuses…”
On https://developer.github.com/apps/building-oauth-apps/understanding-scopes-for-oauth-apps/#available-scopes

This feels unnecessary. The text could just be “read/write commit statuses”.

NB: “Read and write security events” is used below on “security_events”

Same goes for the other items.

See picture for reference:
