I experienced following behaviour and didn’t know where I should open an issue.
I’m using an action that runs
on PR and comments back with some information at same PR. While PR is unlocked everything works fine. When I’m locking PR only contributors are allowed to take part in the conversation (= creating comments). This behaviour works well for human users but I would have expected technical users like github-actions bot being able to create comments in locked state.
Technical users are configured and maintained by contributors so I understand them as “deputies” and think they should have contributor rights (at least for commenting).
What do you think? If you agree: where should I file an issue?
Example: between locking and unlocking PR in the image below I did same action and expected a comment just like the other ones (source).
