I got an email today after authenticating a new GitHub Repo on Squiz Matrix using Basic Authentication AKA username and password. It states:
You recently used a password to access the repository at horikx/visitwaggapartnerpay with git using git/184.108.40.206.
Basic authentication using a password to Git is deprecated and will soon no longer work. Visit https://github.blog/2020-12-15-token-authentication-requirements-for-git-operations/ for more information around suggested workarounds and removal dates.

Has there been any talk about how this will be solved?
