Dear GitHub team,
While many services support file-based configuration, GitHub is still lacking behind. I was hoping this would be solved via a GitHub action but I am out of luck because the GitHub token accessible within the workflows is lacking those permissions.
I would like to be able to edit all of these:
- even ideally “include in the homepage”
I am creating various repo boilerplates and I have the data to fill this at hand but I am lacking the automatic access.
- do it manually
- ask the user to generate a PAT and trust me with it
None is a good solution IMO.
- Either give more permissions to the actions token
- Either allow configuring these options from a file within the .github folder
