USE CASE: Auto fill release note into GitHub Release

The GitHub Actions helps us to automate workflows. So, I have automated write release note into GitHub Release.

  1. create a GitHub Release (only input tag name and title)
  2. a GitHub Action will be triggered by release event
    1. the GitHub Action makes release note and write that into GitHub Release

NOTE: If you are interested in this use case, I can show my GitHub Actions in my playground repository.
