It’s another monthly burst of news about bors-ng, a merge queue implementation.
In the last month, we landed 15 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!
- notriddle fixed a bug in the mergeable flag handling, a flaw that prevents people from setting API timeouts themselves, a crash in squash merging when there’s merge conflicts
- notriddle enabled reading the batch info pages as unprivileged users on public instances
- notriddle added a way to see commit hashes and other info on narrow screens (mostly smartphones)

Who’s using bors?
This month’s featured user is OnceCell, a tiny Rust library that provides shared, late-initialized data types:
- It will never panic at runtime, unlike the standard library RefCell.
- It provides direct access to the stored data, unlike the standard library Cell.
- It is on track to be added to the standard library.
Got any suggestions for next month? Post a comment on the November pull request.
