So I've built an App which puts a "Deploy!" button on Checks pages of each commit.
When a user clicks that App gets check_run event and emits a deployment event.
GitHub Actions workflow kicks in and does the deployment as needed.
I'd like to move the button part into Actions as well.
So I'm able to put a button to a Checks page.
But clicking it does nothing. Neither workflows nor the app gets the deployment event.
I understand that it's a currently documented limitation but maybe some things are worth improvements?
It'd be nice if Actions could cause at least these two event types...
