Follow-up from QA meeting 2020-05-29, minutes here.
We have included an exception in our commit check script so that commits from dependabot can get merged without Changelog tag. However the information they contain is relevant and we would like to have it in the final generated changelog.
An example of commit done by the bot can be found here.
This task will add functionality to the changelog generator tool (ref here) to detect commits from the bot, aggregate the results, and format a single changelog entry with all the 3rd party upgrades.
- The tool generates an extra changelog entry with the aggregated commits of dependabot.
- There is a unit tests for it
