## What should I know before submitting a pull request or issue
The code related to `upload-artifact` is split between this repository and [actions/toolkit]( where the `@actions/artifact` npm package is housed. The npm package contains the core functionality to interact with artifacts. Any extra functionality on top of interacting with the apis such as search is inside this repository.
Artifact related issues will be tracked in this repository so please do not open duplicate issues in `actions/toolkit`.

## Licensed
This repository uses a tool called [Licensed]( to verify third party dependencies. You may need to locally install licensed and run `licensed cache` to update the dependency cache if you install or update a production dependency. If licensed cache is unable to determine the dependency, you may need to modify the cache file yourself to put the correct license. You should still verify the dependency, licensed is a tool to help, but is not a substitute for human review of dependencies.
