Codespaces now have a configurable idle timeout

By default Codespaces time out after 30 minutes of inactivity. We’ve heard from many users that they have a desire to extend this up to an entire workday. You can now set a default idle timeout for your codespaces from five minutes to four hours, as well as override the idle timeout for an individual codespace using the gh CLI.
