New limits affecting the Checks API

The Checks API now has a limit of 1,000 check runs with the same name per check suite.

Using checks, you can run checks against code changes in a repository, as either a check run or a check suite. For two check runs with the same name, only the most recent check run is displayed in the UI, but older versions can be queried via the API.

The new limit restricts how many check runs are stored with the same name, to a maximum of 1,000. If the limit is exceeded, only the most recent 1,000 runs are stored, and older runs are deleted. This change affects both newly created check suites and new check runs in existing check suites. Existing check runs are not affected unless the limit is newly exceeded.
