EMU Namespace Repo Visibility & Access Public Beta

Repositories in the user namespace of enterprise-managed users (EMU) can now be seen and accessed by enterprise administrators. All repositories in the user namespace (e.g. can now be navigated to from the Repositories enterprise policies page:<enterprise>/settings/member_privileges. From this new view, administrators can temporarily grant themselves administrative rights to these repositories. This action will trigger alerts to the repository owner as well as audit log events.

This public beta feature set is intended to increase visibility of namespace repositories to administrators while also empowering administrators to audit these repositories as needed.

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

To opt out of this and continue using Node12 while it is still available in the runner, you can choose to set ACTIONS_ALLOW_USE_UNSECURE_NODE_VERSION=true
as an 'env' in their workflow or as an environment variable on your runner machine. This will only work until we upgrade the runner removing Node12 later in the summer.

What you need to do

For Actions maintainers: Update your actions to run on Node16 instead of Node12 (Actions configuration settings)
For Actions users: Update your workflows with latest versions of the actions which runs on Node16 (Using versions for Actions)

Enterprise administrators can now disable repository level self-hosted runners across organizations and enterprise user namespaces.

Once this new setting has been enabled users will no longer be able to register new self-hosted runners in a repository and existing runners will not be able to receive new jobs.
