When changes in a repository make a Dependabot pull request out-of-date, Dependabot will automatically rebase it so that it is able to be merged without your manual effort. With this release, if a PR has not been merged for 30 days, Dependabot will stop rebasing it and will include a note about this in the PR body. You will still be able to manually rebase and merge the pull request. We've heard your feedback about Dependabot noisiness and are making Dependabot quieter and more focused on repositories you care about. For enterprise customers, this improvement has the added benefit of enhanced efficiency with your self-hosted GitHub Actions runners. For Enterprise Server customers, this update will be available to you in GHES 3.10.
GitHub Importer allows you to import repositories from other code hosting platforms to GitHub.com using a UI or REST API.
Today, GitHub Importer supports Git, Mercurial, Subversion and Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) repositories.
From October 17, 2023, we will no longer support importing Mercurial, Subversion and Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) repositories. We're ending support for this functionality due to extremely low levels of usage.
Even without GitHub Importer, moving from these alternative version control systems to Git is simple thanks to fantastic open source tools – for more details, read our Docs article, "Using the command line to import source code".
