I was wondering how dependabot figures out the style of commit messages to use? The doc says that:
GitHub Dependabot attempts to detect your commit message preferences and use similar patterns
I’ve recently switched one of my projects to conventional commits (
<type>(<scope>): <commit message>) and made sure to use this commit style in the recent commits with a linting workflow.
However, a recent update kept using the old style and I had to squash and merge to edit the commit message. I was a bit surprised as another project I switched earlier was fine: Dependabot used the new convention.
Is it only a matter of time for Dependabot to pick up the change? Is there anything I can do to nudge it?
