Re: [tycho-dev] Enable Auto-Merge?

I'm not sure if you have read the documentation or maybe have a different understanding about "automerge" but as far as I understand it from the doc is that it does not "automatically merges everything" but allows to enable "automatically merge this after all checks pass" (and such a check could be an approving review).

So instead of:

1) Create PR
2) review it, looks good
3) wait for the build complete
4) press the merge button

You can do:
1) Create PR
2) review it, looks good
3) press the auto-merge button
4) ci build succeeds GH merges the PR as your previous decision ...

So the only difference is that:

1) we have to decide when a PR is "ready" (at the moment one can merge a PR at any time!) 2) We do not need to sit there and wait for a PR, check the checks manually and then press the merge button manually

FWIW, I dislike auto-merge; and I'm not thrilled when I read something is meant to "increase velocity" as velocity is not necessary implying quality and sustainability. I prefer a good old workflow where someone accredited as reliable enough (ie elected committer) takes the responsibility of deciding what to merge and when according to a bigger picture that an auto-merge process wouldn't have a clue about.
