[PATCH] import: github: Catch HTTP 403 error during fetch.

From: Mathieu OTHACEHE
Subject: [PATCH] import: github: Catch HTTP 403 error during fetch.
Date: Tue, 17 Jan 2017 09:17:30 +0100

* guix/import/github.scm (json-fetch*): Catch 403 HTTP error that may be
  raised if a github token has not been set.

Signed-off-by: Mathieu OTHACEHE <address@hidden>


If too many github requests are made during a guix refresh (> 60/h),
github will reject all further requests with a 403 error.

The 403 error is not catch in json-fetch* guard, so guix refresh
will exit at that point. The user never gets to error message
informing that setting a GUIX_GITHUB_TOKEN may fix the problem.
