In order to continue, you must be signed in using your Github account.

If you're signing in using this account for the first time Github will ask for your permission to give access to your public user data to the Ruby Toolbox.

Although the Github Authorization page does not mention it, the request includes read-only access to your verified email address (user:email OAuth scope). This is neccessary so there's a way to notify you about comments, information about your accepted project edits and the like. You can review your notification settings on your account page once you're signed in.
