and then an email from github.com:

Hi @mwette,

On February 8th, 2020 at 14:37 (UTC) your personal access token (guix/bluefin) 
using GNU Guile was used as part of a query parameter to access an endpoint 
through the GitHub API:


Please use the Authorization HTTP header instead, as using the `access_token` 
query parameter is deprecated and will be removed July 1st, 2020.

Depending on your API usage, we'll be sending you this email reminder once 
every 3 days for each token and User-Agent used in API calls made on your 
Just one URL that was accessed with a token and User-Agent combination will be 
listed in the email reminder, not all.

  for more information.
