It’s another monthly burst of news about bors-ng, a GitHub app that checks and merges PRs in an orderly fasion.
In the last month, we landed 2 PRs in the bors-ng repository.
- notriddle added a button to sync all added repos from GitHub to BORS on demand (in case a webhook gets dropped)
- adzenith improved the table layout by removing unnecessary spaces

Who’s using bors?
This month’s featured user is rust-num, the numerics library for Rust.
This project holds maintainership over several “advanced numerics” libraries (Rust has basics fixed-length integer and floating point math, equal to C, built-in). Here’s some of their libraries:
- num-bigint: math with numbers bigger than 128 bits
- num-complex: math with an imaginary component
- num-integer: extensions for integers, including the built-in fixed-length integers and num-bigint
- a trait (similar to interfaces and concepts in other languages) for integers, allowing generic code that supports any type of integer
- additional integer functions like
- num-iter: an enhanced version of
- num-rational: a fraction library
- num-traits: generic traits for all numbers
