dpt-github-oauth - Generate GitHub OAuth2 token
dpt github-oauth [note-text]
can be used for obtaining an OAuth2 token for
authenticating to GitHub services without the need to enter your password on
every request. The reason for this script is to allow you to populate the
"DPT_GITHUB_OAUTH" setting in dpt.conf
You cannot obtain an OAuth2 token with this script if you have two-factor
authentication (2FA) enabled on GitHub.
An alternative method for obtaining the token is to use the GitHub web
interface, Applications->Personal Access Tokens.
The token obtained with this program is authorized only for reporting issues.
The only supported argument, note-text
, is a short note associated with
the token. It is used for easy distinguishing different tokens and their
purpose. If not specified, the string "pkg-perl-tools on host
$HOSTNAME" is used, where $HOSTNAME is obtained via Sys::Hostname.
The GitHub user name and password are prompted for and can't be supplied as
