Hi Ben,

The GitHub updater always returns 403 (“Forbidden”) now.  I tried
passing a token and that didn’t help, but maybe I did not check the
right boxes at <>.

Any idea what can be done about it?

It seems GitHub requires a User-Agent to be set, the response-body not reported by http-fetch says as much in agreement with the documention:

I'm afraid I'm afk for the next week and a bit, I can try to send a patch after that, or perhaps someone else can implement this probably small change.

Thanks, ben.
