Github Action Uploader

Dataverse integration with GitHub is implemented via a Dataverse Uploader GitHub Action. It is a reusable, composite workflow for uploading a git repository or subdirectory into a dataset on a target Dataverse installation. The action is customizable, allowing users to choose to replace a dataset, add to the dataset, publish it or leave it as a draft version on Dataverse. The action provides some metadata to the dataset, such as the origin GitHub repository, and it preserves the directory tree structure.
