Explain why we need email on Git
The git hub connection page says that MDN is asking for "personal user data" which is kind of intimidating. I'm wondering if we can soften this blow some how? Does the API allow us to explain what it will be used for? Can the "visit this application's website" be a page explaining the benefits of an MDN account or does that always go to the application's home page?
:shobson We can certainly change the link (:groovecoder can, I don't have the Github perms) to link to a explanatory MDN page. We can't send other data with the Github auth request.
Right, we can't customize the GitHub permission messages. I just verified we *can* customize the "Visit this application's website" to a doc. I propose we create a GitHub application doc - probably arounnd the https://developer-local.allizom.org/docs/MDN/Contribute/Howto/Create_an_MDN_account page - and point our application link at it. If that sounds good, who should write the special page? :)

:sheppy - do you feel like you know enough about the GitHub auth experience to explain it in a special doc page for it?
I... am not sure. It would be easier if someone else wrote down at least the bullet points and then I massaged it into something human-readable. :)
