- Include full URLs, repository names, and usernames wherever possible.
- Reproduce the issue if applicable and be prepared to share the steps.
- Be prepared to provide a full description of the issue and expected results.
- Copy exact wording of all error messages related to your issue.

If Copilot in GitHub Support is unable to resolve your issue, you can continue submitting your ticket. For more information, see "About Copilot in GitHub Support."
