CHAOSS Weekly Newsletter

Regarding Augur, there were many small bugs that were run into while running the GitHub worker and encountering rare cases. The Augur team updated the worker to handle all these cases that they ran into and the worker is nearly running perfectly smooth. They have changed the way they create GitHub API requests to include user authorization. Other changes were GitHub made to the worker in order to query issues of all states (open and closed), and of all the pages available (by default, the GitHub API only returns the first page of issues).
