I setup actions for pull requests based on a protected branch and enabled the “Require branch to be up to date” setting.
Now, when I have two pull requests that passes all checks, both are “able to merge”. But after the first PR is merged, the second is “out of date” (which is totally correct and fine).
In order to update the branch, I have to merge the base branch back to the PR branch - which causes an unnecessary merge commit, if there will be no conflicts.
So it would be nice, if I could just rerun the status checks for the second PR against the NEW MERGE HEAD, and if that passed, would be able to merge without creating the unnecessary merge commit.
