Deploying a plugin to the repository

Whenever you tag a new version of your plugin on GitHub, your changes will be committed to both trunk and the appropriate tags subfolder in your plugin repository.

Deploying plugin asset/readme updates to the repository

If you push to your specified branch and it only contains changes to the assets directory (defaults to /.wordpress-org) or readme.txt, deploy those changes to the plugin repository. This is useful for being able to update things like screenshots or the Tested up to version in between tagged releases.

Publishing generated hook documentation to GitHub Pages

If you follow the JSDoc standard for your custom WordPress actions and filters, you can use this workflow to generate documentation for your theme/plugin and publish them to GitHub Pages. For an example of the output, see the Distributor hook docs.
