Was the endpoint changed in some way? I've found no documentation regarding any changes.

More info.

There was a snapshot taken just 2 days ago.

This is Google's cache of https://github.com/actions/bin/tree/master/filter. It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on 6 Oct 2019 19:10:08 GMT.

Is there a reason that this repository was removed? Is unreachable?

I just started running into this issue too.  I can't find any news/changelogs related to it...

Exact same issue, how could GitHub delete an Actions repo and so breaking automation build without even a notice!!!

Re: pull request check no longer finding resource

I reached out to Github's support. It seems that repository was related to the old HCL-based actions (even though I used it with the yaml). They said the different actions in that repository can be easily created with yaml syntax. For example, I was using the `is-tag` filter so I could now use:

 

name: On create tag
on: create
jobs:
    build:
        runs-on: ubuntu-latest
        steps:
        - name: Check if tag
          if: github.event.ref_type == 'tag'
          run: echo Tag!
