Removing task: Install GitHub App

Hey lifters!

While completing tasks, you may have encountered one called “Install GitHub App.” The primary reason for this task was to provide us with higher rate-limits while using the GitHub API. Through improvements in our application, we have heavily reduced the number of API requests we are making, so we’ve decided to stop requiring you to install the GitHub App on your repositories.

Starting soon, you will no longer see this task displayed in your dashboard—and you can remove the installations from your projects if you’d like. Over the next week, we’ll be updating our documentation to reflect this as well and hope to have this completely phased out within a couple weeks.

Please let us know if you have any questions, either here or by emailing us at lift@tidelift.com

Thank you,
-Blaine
