For the REST api I normally authenticate through username and password (in python). Got a message from GitHub today that reads; "You recently used a password to access an endpoint through the GitHub API using python-requests/2.22.0. We will deprecate basic authentication using password to this endpoint soon: blah, blah, blah ..".
Generated token, spend about an hour on how to use it with python requests.sesion, it is either 404 or 403, in short it does not work (it does appear to be working with curl though). Back to username and password.
So my question is - why push down the users throats what appears to be not working just yet, or not ready, or whatever that is, why not provide good comprehensive documentation first, and only then send a message to the end user stating that he or she can use it. It is annoying and amusing to no end.
