Why Everhour needs read and write access to GitHub repos
We request access to your GitHub repositories so we can access issues.
Believe it or not, there is no GitHub API permission allowing "OAuth Apps" to request access ONLY for Issues at this time. We have to request read/write access to your code to interact with Issues. And the transition to "GitHub Apps" is quite difficult for us at the moment and raises a number of questions.
We will never, ever modify your code. Ever. Just like you, we’re developers and entirely respect the privacy of your code.
