  1. Dual schedules for Drupal package updates:
    • Daily update schedule for critical Drupal core and related packages created in the deps/drupal-minor-patch-core branch.
    • Weekly update schedule for all other packages created in the deps/drupal-minor-patch-contrib branch.
  2. Docker image updates in Dockerfile and docker-compose.yml files in the deps/docker branch.
  3. GitHub Actions updates in the deps/github-actions branch.
  4. Automatically adds a dependencies label to a pull request.
  5. Automatically adds assignees to a pull request.
  6. Configuration for running Renovate self-hosted instance using CircleCI.

Self-hosted vs GitHub app

Renovate can run as a hosted GitHub app or as a standalone self-hosted service in CircleCI.

A self-hosted service can be beneficial when your project is restricted in terms of third-party access.
