Comment (by afragen):

 What GitHub is doing is deprecating the auth token in a query arg.

 The solution is to use the same auth token in a Basic Auth header.

 The format from the {{{http_request_args}}} filter is

  {{{$args['headers']['Authorization'] = token my_current_auth_token';}}}

 Assuming the authentication is via {{{wp_remote_get()}}}
