A GitHub bot to add status checks for inclusive language.
Note: The checks currently run on public repositories. This helps limit permissions for organizations with many repositories.
The level of rules can be modified using
.github/in-solidarity.yml. Check the sample configuration.
rules: master: level: off slave: level: failure ignore: - ".github/in-solidarity.yml" # default - "**/*.yml"
The rule names are in rules.ts. Contributions are welcome!
