      WilsonComputer:~ wluu$ appc login --help
      Appcelerator Command-Line Interface, version 4.1.0-3
      Copyright (c) 2014-2015, Appcelerator, Inc.  All Rights Reserved.
        Usage: appc-login [options]
        login to Appcelerator Platform
          -h, --help                   output usage information
          --colors                     enable colors
          -l, --log-level <level>      set the log level
          --no-colors                  disable colors
          --no-services                disable services
          --force                      overwrite previous project
          --password <password>        password for authentication
          --prompt-port <promptPort>   port to use socket-based prompting
          --prompt-type <promptType>   prompt type ["cli","socket","socket-bundle"], defaults to "cli"
          --username <username>        username for authentication
          -e, --env <environment>      environment such as production, preproduction, development, etc
          -v, --vpc-env <vpcEnv>       vpc environment for login
          -H, --host <host>            host for login
          -o, --org-id <orgId>         organization id for login
          -r, --registry <registry>    registry for login
          -s, --server <server>        security server for login
          --cloud <server>             arrow cloud server for login
          -d, --dashboard <dashboard>  dashboard for login
          -t, --token <token>          login using a generated token

      And, the token flag seems to be confused with the email authentication code.

      Expected: The token help description should specify that it's a github token AND there should be a link as how to obtain the github link to work with our platform.
