Another minor annoyance is that the link on the Github "Checks" page that
says "View More Details on Azure Pipelines" takes you to a login page,
which then forwards you to the public (no login required) pipeline build
results page.  As a result, people might not realize you can view the build
results for public projects without a Microsoft account, so you'll probably
want to put a build status badge with a direct link somewhere prominent in
