Comment: added github token renewal info


The documentation is automatically updated using webhooks linking GitHub to the ReadTheDocs site when you merge a pull request in the main branch of the Besu documentation repository.

titleImportant note about Github token renewal

The webhook triggers the Read The Docs build.

This build uses a Github PAT for the hyperledger-bot as environment variable (MKDOCS_GITHUB_USER and MKDOCS_GITHUB_TOKEN) to install MKDocs Material insider theme with Python pip.

The PAT for hyperledger-bot has to be renewed every 90 days by asking 

The PAT probably has to be renewed if RTD build fails with the following error in the builds:

fatal: Authentication failed for ''

The system also detects tags in the GitHub repository and makes the latest stable release and previous versions available.
