Github deprecates current way to foward variables to another step of a job

We should take a look at this announcement made by Github yesterday: GitHub Actions: Deprecating save-state and set-output commands | GitHub Changelog

We need to change the way we store variables in github actions.

So no more echo "::set-output name=secret_answer::42" to store the variable secret_answer that can be accessed by the following steps of a job.

I’ll have a read of the announcement and will create a patch to fix it in our actions soon.

@tstellar @tobiashieta I think you want to know about this as well, right?

Thanks for noticing this! I don’t know in what pipelines we use this in - but feel free to add me as a reviewer.
