Maintainers of GitHub repositories can now use Category Forms to create templates for their Discussions, which means that users can start new discussions with all the necessary information already included. We hope this leads to less repetitive back and forth conversation with maintainers, as users are more likely to capture all relevant details in their first Discussion post.

Similar to Issue Forms, maintainers can create a discussion template, which will live in .github/DISCUSSION_TEMPLATE/. Each template will map 1:1 with the available Discussion Categories slugs. For example, the template for the “Announcements” category will be .github/DISCUSSION_TEMPLATE/announcements.yml. Once created, Category Forms in Discussions will be familiar to users who have seen them in issues:

GitHub secret scanning protects users by searching repositories for known types of secrets. By identifying and flagging these secrets, our scans help prevent data leaks and fraud.

We have partnered with Persona to scan for their API keys and help secure our mutual users on all public repositories and private repositories with GitHub Advanced Security. Persona API keys allow users to create, update, and interact with their identity-related data. GitHub will forward API keys found in public repositories to Persona, who will notify affected customers and work with them to rotate their API keys. You can read more information about Persona API keys here.

GitHub Advanced Security customers can also scan for Persona API keys and block them from entering their private and public repositories with push protection.
