Package policydef defines the interface that policies must implement to be included in Allstar.

Policies should define and retrieve their own config in the same way that Allstar does. There should be an org-level config and repo-level config. Each config should include the OptConfig defined in github.com/ossf/allstar/pkg/config to determine if the policy is enabled or disabled. The config package also provided helper functions to retreive config from the repo.

	// Name must return the human readable name of the policy.
	Name() string

	// Check checks whether the provided repo is in compliance with the policy or
	// not. It must use the provided context and github client. See Result for
	// more details on the return value.
	Check(ctx context.Context, c *github.Client, owner, repo string) (*Result, error)

	// Fix should modify the provided repo to be in compliance with the
	// policy. The provided github client must be used to either edit repo
	// settings or modify files. Fix is optional and the policy may simply
	// return.
	Fix(ctx context.Context, c *github.Client, owner, repo string) error

	// GetAction must return the configured action from the policy's config. No
	// validation is needed by the policy, it will be done centrally.
	GetAction(ctx context.Context, c *github.Client, owner, repo string) string
