 * component:  General => Profiles


 Today I added a `Link your github account` section to
 profiles.wordpress.org, following @melchoyce's mockups above.

 [https://profiles.wordpress.org/profile/edit/ profile edit screen] and go
 through the oAuth flow (It grants read-only access to your public

 The GitHub application remains Authorised on the GitHub account, just with
 next-to-no-permissions. Delinking the Github from your WordPress.org
 profile also removes the GitHub authorisation. Revoking access to the app
