It’s another monthly burst of news about bors, the bot that tests your code before it becomes the master.

In the last month, we landed 17 PRs in the bors-ng repository.

Notable Additions

  • notriddle enabled wobserver on Heroku
  • Macarse fixed some mistakes in the developer documentation
  • notriddle added docker-based setup scripts to start a local instance on new contributor’s machines
  • notriddle moved the worker processes (the processes that actually do the merging and polling to make bors work) into a separate OTP app from the web UI
  • Macarse added Credo, and fixed some warnings that it produced
  • notriddle set the webhook controller to silently ignore actions that it does not care about
  • notriddle gave bors the ability to manage more than a single “master” branch
