Dependabot PRs only solves half the problem. It automatically opens PRs when your dependencies fall out of date. But I still gotta wait for tests to pass, merge it, wait for the others to rebase, wait for tests to pass, rinse/repeat. And it's something you've gotta do *every week* or it all piles up.
I drop kicked Dependabot in favor of WhiteSource Renovate which can automatically merge. Waaaay nicer. Been going steady for a month and I rarely ever need to intervene.
