I've got a situation where I've got essentially two different sets of VSCode configurations that I use, and each VSCode installation will use only one of them. Does Settings Sync allow setting up two different Gists, one for each configuration, in the same Github account?


It will sync up only with one gist called cloudSettings as I know.
