I know the current Statuses API does not provide an endpoint that allows you to delete a commit status (‘context’) from a repo, but is there any other way to accomplish this? (any plans to add this as a feature?) It’s annoying to have a status invoked and show up in the PR window even when it is not ‘required’ for a particular branch. Granted, it can be tweaked such that it always returns a ‘success’ value, but that’s more of a hack than a solution.
Also, what is the significance of the one week timeframe WRT to new status checks in the branch protection rules, e.g., "Status checks found in the last week for this repository " ? Is there a way to “age out” (and thereby ‘remove’) a commit status relative to this one-week timeframe?
Thanks in advance.
