Username - GitHub user, who has access to repository. Optional for public repositories.
Password - GitHub password, corresponding to Username. Optional for public repositories.

Namespace - Namespace, where to download and compile repository.
For example in the repository: https://github.com/intersystems-ru/Cache-MDX2JSON
