GitHub Upgrade – 2.19.5

The 2.19.5 update is a small update, fixing a few bugs and applying OS package upgrades.

Security Fixes

Notable Bug Fixes

  • The Alambic storage service could hit a file descriptor limit that could cause the kernel to hang and other services to log errors.
  • Importing of teams with nested teams with security visibility could fail. Nested teams will now be imported as top-level teams if they are imported as children of a team with secret visibility.
  • A team created via the API V3 would not automatically add its creator as a maintainer, which caused it to be inaccessible to that person.
  • A GitHub App with the proper set of permissions was not able to create teams with LDAP.

We will be applying the patch at 5:00 PM EST on Jan 24th.
