I'd like to be able to set the release description when publishing a GitHub Release via a GitHub Release Environment. Is there anyway to do this? I still need to be able to trigger a deployment to GitHub manually, not automatically during a build.

    Just update the value on deployment provider settings screen?

    No. I want to use the same deployment provider for multiple projects. We have a dozen or so PowerShell modules we publish to the PowerShell Gallery and GitHub. I don't want to have one deployment provider for each project. I was hoping that as part of my build, I could set the release metadata somewhere that would be used when I'm ready to deploy to GitHub. Or at least be prompted for all the release values I could customize when I choose a GitHub Release environment.
