Feature request: webhooks for reactions

currently there are no webhook events for reacting to a comment/PR/Issue.

Would be nice to have this. I’d like to build a sort of merge bot who decides based on reactions and it would be much nicer If I could avoid querying the API in various time intervals to see what the latest reaction count is.

There was a feature request open for this, but it is only in the google cache-the link doesn’t work anymore: https://platform.github.community/t/webhook-for-reaction-creation-on-issue-comment/1779

I would love to use this feature.

Our team also love to have this feature. We are using reaction to prioritize feature requests.


I also simply NEEEED this. Really! I wanna do something like this: GitHub - mktcode/deepest-dungeon
Currently I can only release a payment by adding a label and THEN look up the reactions.
