Feature request: allow workflow configuration in sub-folders

We use a monorepo setup and currently everything is organized into sub-folders, so for example all services are located in the “services” folder. Currently workflow configuration is the only code which relates to a service that is not in the applicable “services” folder (e.g. “services/foo-service”). In order to maintain clean code separation and ownership, it would be nice if we could place our workflow configuration for a specific service in it’s appropriate folder. The most straightforward solution would seem to be matching on any .github folder in the repo, not just the root one. This would allow us to place workflows in the “services/foo-service/.github/workflows” folder, for example.

I’m using the same setup and would like to see that feature as well. The repo would be much cleaner if I could put the workflow config into the sub-directory of the respective service…

I would love this as well :grinning:
