Composer Update Fails

by fiatux » Fri Dec 12, 2014 4:43 pm

During composer update I am asked for my github credentials repeatedly. What may be causing this?

An existing OAuth token for Composer is present and will be reused

Could not fetch, enter your GitHub credentials to go over the API >rate limit
The credentials will be swapped for an OAuth token stored in /Users/[USER]/.composer/auth.json, your >password will not be stored
To revoke access to this token you can visit

Yes, I am entering my password correct, I have tried several different accounts and I can get authorization from Github if I use curl from cmdline.
