GitHub Boards x Pins Authentication Deprecation


I received an email today from GitHub informing me that their PAT and client_id/client_secret methods of authentication are being deprecated.

Do pins::board_register_github(repo = "owner/repo") and board_register_github(repo = "owner/repo", token = "<new-token>") use this method of authentication? Given github is sending me an email about how I can't do this in the future, I'm assuming that's true.

Is there an existing workaround or is there a planned workaround for this authentication issue?

Thank you so much,

Pins uses whatever PAT you have in your environment, which should still work with the GitHub updates.
