Import GitHub repositories respecting the API rate limit

Douglas Barbosa Alexandre requested to merge gh-rate-limit into master

Closes #17498 (closed)

While Octokit auto pagination set the page size to the maximum 100, and seek to not overstep the rate limit. When the rate limit is reached its raises an exception, and stop doing new requests.

Here we use a custom pattern for traversing large lists, so we can check if we’ll reach the rate limit and wait the API to reset the rate limit before making new requests.
