"Too many requests" error (Part 2) #279
Allow me to give some background before I begin discussing this issue. A while ago, an issue (#222) was created that dealt with an error that was received from the Staticman tool referred to as too many requests. After researching this issue, it seems that having a public instance of the tool was causing it to reach GitHub's API limitation, since everyone was using the same API key. To resolve this, Eduardo created a GitHub application that everyone connected to their own repositories instead of using the public instance and assigning a collaborator. This is referenced in #243.
After implementing this project, with the addition of updating it to the production URL (as referenced in #278), our team is again experiencing the too many requests issue. Seeing as how we never experienced this during the development version, it may still stem from a similar API key, but further research will need to be performed. I'm creating this issue to begin the conversation to solve this.
It has been a while since I've revisited this issue, but my team is beginning to experience it again. I see several others have acknowledged that they are seeing this issue with the latest version of the application as well.
Pinging @eduardoboucas for further inspection, as I believe this will need to be another restructure and simply not an update to the application.
