Dependabot update frequency - "live" option

Hi, Dependabot Preview supports “live” update option for some package managers, like npm. It never really worked “live”, but I hoped it will be fixed over time. Now I see that the option is gone with a new configuration file format. Will it ever be back? Are there plans to increase the frequency from “daily”?

Thanks for the feedback.

We can’t make any promises as to when or even if the “live” option will come back or options more frequent than “daily” will become available. I will, however, pass along your interest to the appropriate team.

Isn’t “live” what makes security updates useful in the first place?
