Re: Pkg.publish() asks for a "host" password - what host?

You probably deleted your GutHub access token file. It is located in the Julia local package repository folder, file ".github/token". You can recreate this token by going to GitHub user profile > Applications > Personal access tokens > Julia Package Manager, click 'Regenerate' button and save the access token in .github/token file.

And I should add that I have never been successful in using Pkg.publish().  I always get the error

ERROR: key not found: "token"

after the dialogue shown below.

What is the host here?  It seems that it must be the github password but

 a) I don't know why it is needed if there is already ssh authentication enabled

 b) Why does the message ask for "host password" if the github password is intended?
