GitHub Actions: All Actions will run on Node16 instead of Node12

Node 12 has been out of support since April 2022, as a result we have started the deprecation process of Node 12 for GitHub Actions. We plan to migrate all actions to run on Node16 by Summer 2023.
Following on from our warning in workflows using Node 12, we will start enforcing the use of Node16 rather than Node12 on the 14th of June.

What you need to do
For Actions maintainers: Update your actions to run on Node 16 instead of Node 12 (Actions configuration settings)
For Actions users: Update your workflows with latest versions of the actions which runs on Node 16 (Using versions for Actions)

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 Doppler to scan for their tokens and help secure our mutual users on public repositories. Doppler tokens allow users to access and manage their secrets from their existing tooling and infrastructure. GitHub will forward access tokens found in public repositories to Doppler, who will revoke the tokens and email affected customers. You can read more information about Doppler tokens here.

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