I was going to ask this on a Slack or Teams channel but there appears to be none dedicated to Actions developers.
My goal is to make a workflow as extensible/DRY as possible. The GH API is very rich so I have been able to make workflows pretty abstract thus far. However, one of my pain points is that I have to create environment variables for each workflow in a repo that are the exact same. These environment variables are truly repo-specific. If I could put them at the repository level, it would make it so I define these variables ONCE per repository.
Consider the following:
env: UTIL_DIRECTORY: .github/util CONTAINER_REGISTRY_IMAGE: ** CONTAINER_REGISTRY_SUB: ** CONTAINER_REGISTRY: ** HELM_NAMESPACE: ** HELM_CHART_REPO:**
The container registry, for example, is universal across all workflows in a repo for me.
The closest I see is the Repository Secrets functionality, which is close but not quite. Seems kind of strange to put non-secrets in there.
