    At the end of last year, GitHub introduced the Merge Queue, a mirror of GitLab’s (premium-tier only) Merge Trains feature to do exactly this.

    Well, there was homu doing the merge queue thing long before the GitLab implemented “merge train”, and there’s still some forks and reimplementations doing same thing.
