I have a Cloud VPS project called srwiki-dev. I have set cron which automatically updates Mediawiki (core, extensions, skins)
also and composer/npm dependencies. It happens each Thursday. But, I don't know why GitHub sends me this mail below.

Subject: [GitHub API] Deprecation notice for authentication via URL query parameters
To: Zoran Dori <firstname.lastname@example.org
On August 13th, 2020 at 20:00 (UTC) your personal access token (Composer on discordwiki 2020-03-25 2307) using Composer/1.8.4 (Linux; 4.19.0-8-amd64; PHP 7.3.19) 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. If this token is being used by an app you don't have control over, be aware that it may stop working as a result of this deprecation.
Depending on your API usage, we'll be sending you this email reminder on a monthly basis for each token and User-Agent used in API calls made on your behalf.
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 about suggested workarounds and removal dates.
