Tado are changing their authentication. Help needed please

I am using the node "node-red-contrib-tado-client" that is owned by mattdavis90.
I have received the following email from Tado that says the following.

We have noticed that you are using the unofficial tado° REST API with an old authentication method. That is, you are making requests similar to https://my.tado.com/api/v2/me?username=myUsername&password=myPassword where username and password are supplied as query parameters with each request.

We will discontinue the support for this type of authentication and only support OAuth 2 in the future (you can find more information at https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/html/rfc6749).

We plan to turn off the authentication on December 4th 2023.
Important: We will stop synchronising passwords for this legacy authentication. If you reset your password, the legacy authentication might stop working even before the above date, so please try to switch to the new type of authentication as quickly as possible.

I would like to get in touch with mattdavis90 to see if he would kindly amend his node to reflect these changes. I have no idea how to do this.

Maybe someone who uses Tado could have a look.

I'm afraid I do not have the ability to even know where to start.

Any ideas would be great.

You need to go here and raise an issue:

Issues · mattdavis90/node-red-contrib-tado-client (github.com)

Where nodes list their GitHub reference, that is always the place to go unless they specifically say otherwise.

Thank you very much.
I'll give it a go.
Thanks again.

Going by the note on Github the node already supports OAuth 2

This node connects to the Tado Web API and gets an OAuth2 token for further transactions.
