It’s another monthly burst of news about bors-ng, because if your primary development branch has failing tests, you don’t have a code problem; you have a process problem.

In the last month, we landed 13 PRs in the bors-ng repository.

“This Month in Bors” is written in public on GitHub. If you find a mistake, pull requests or issue reports are appreciated!

Who’s using bors?

CockroachDB is a distributed relational database that speaks the PostgreSQL client-server protocol as a drop-in replacement for existing apps.

It has a sharding and replication algorithm built-in, which maintains high availability and consistency in many common failure scenarios. A CockroachDB cluster will maintain consistency by going down if a majority of nodes can’t reach each other (it is a CP distributed data store). It supports, but doesn’t require, you to define availability regions and replication rules.

Cockroach Labs runs a self-hosted instance of bors-ng and TeamCity called “craig” on Google Cloud. They’ve been great help getting the self-host documentation and Docker Hub working well.
