Currently there isn't a GUI for changing the time refresh intervals. If you'd like to change them you can update them through terminal by using 2 different commands.
defaults write com.keithsmiley.github-status refreshInterval -int NUM defaults write com.keithsmiley.github-status downRefreshInterval -int NUM
NUM with the SECONDS you want it to be refreshed by. EX 60 for 1 minute. The
refreshInterval is the interval for when github is acting normal. The default is 1800 aka 30 minutes. The
downRefreshInterval is the default time for when Github is down or unreachable. The default is 300 aka 5 minutes.
