I am trying to develop a private github action that runs on docker.
As a pre-condition to this action I want a step to checkout a repo.
In a workflow I would do it with
But as per the below description on composite Github Actions, the runs section does not support “uses”.
As a workaround, I have to invoke git clone which feels like a hack. Is there any plan to provide support for using other actions within composite actions ?
I see. It would be a requirement as time progresses. This is because orgs would want to build keep building complex Github Actions using the smaller lego blocks of github actions.
With git clone, is a simple workaround but not so for other actions.
