Testing using the following I can get the latest issue in the repo that has had an update:
curl -H "Accept: application/vnd.github.v3+json" https://api.github.com/repos/<my_org>/<my_repo>/issues?state=open&sort=updated&direction=desc
I am wondering if an elegant way exists to get the most recently updated based on either a new comment/edit OR a reaction.
From the REST API docs it looks like reactions are only accessible on a per issue basis, so I would need to iterate over all the open issues, pull the reactions, and then locally sort for the most recently active issue.
Perhaps I am missing something?
