Action Items


confirm that github security checks is a sub-set of dependabot

What is "Dependabot Preview"?

It’s the pre-acquisition version of Dependabot. It’s much more fully-featured than the GitHub-integrated version currently - it can update all your dependencies (not just those with known vulnerabilities), and it supports many more language ecosystems.

What happens if I have both "Dependabot Preview" and "Automated Security Fixes" activated?

You’ll get pull requests from both as usual. In cases where both bots would normally to create the same PR (i.e., dependencies with known vulnerabilities) one bot will create it first and the other will do nothing unless that PR is closed, in which case it will also create it.

Need help? Email help@finos.org we'll get back to you.
