Temporary interaction limits have new, powerful, and flexible updates. You can now enable interaction limits for up to six months. In addition, you can limit interactions across all your personal repositories with a single toggle.
Now, you can set temporary interaction limits for 24 hours, three days, one week, one month, or six months. This gives you more flexibility to slow things down when a repository is getting a lot of attention, take breaks away from projects, and protect from spam or abuse.
Sometimes keeping up with your GitHub repositories can be overwhelming, especially if many of them are open source. If you need to put things on pause, you can now enable temporary interaction limits across all of your public, user-owned repositories with a single toggle in your user settings under “Interaction limits.”
These new features are also available in the REST API. Check out the Interactions documentation for more on how to set longer interaction limits, or to set them for all of a user’s public repositories.
