Posting pull request notes as a GitHub App


#1

I watched @bkeepers’s talk yesterday and my jaw dropped when I saw this:

Is posting custom activity notes on pull requests from a GitHub App a beta or upcoming API feature? I’d love to give it a try for Pull Reminders.

Hey @abinoda, I’m glad you’re excited about it! I am too :slight_smile:

We’re committed to only using public APIs for the Slack app, so if it’s available to us, it’ll eventually be available to you! There might be a delay between when we start using it and make it available as a beta feature.

At the moment there’s not a timeline for when these cross references will be available, but we’ll let you know when we’re looking for beta testers.

Sounds great, thanks!

I’d love to have this for Dependabot, too - almost all of our interactions are through comments on PRs so it would be perfect for us.
