GitHub GraphQL Thoughts

I’ve really come to like using GitHub’s GraphQL API, but I have come across some aggravating things relating to their documentation. The documentation for rate limits talks about the node limit and their system of a “rate limit score”, but that isn’t all there is. In one of the applications I have been working on we are getting messages about their abuse rate limits. That wasn’t something we expected because it was never referenced in the GraphQL documentation, it is part of the v3 REST API documentation.
