I am still learning the yml format and how things work, so maybe this is not the most common of problems, but I am pretty confused on the wording of ‘rerun’.
So essentially what happened was:
- I have some folder to ignore for pytest. Someone made a PR (1) that changed that folders name but without any other things. For some reason, none of the github actions ran (I am guessing they first set the PR to a branch that doesnt have actions, then changed the branch to merge into that does have actions, and then it didn’t run)
- I merged the PR 1
- The next PR (2) was for something unrelated, but now the github action fails because the folder that was being ignored was renamed. it does not change the yml file
- I updated the yml file to fix the name
- I went back to the PR 2 and clicked rerun, but it fails again, because it is using the old yml file
So what is rerun supposed to do? Just rerunning the same thing that will fail will keep failing if it doesn’t include any changes of the repo, right? Or am I not using it correctly?
