Bots always appear as "First-time contributor"


Minor bug report: currently, bots connected to an App always appear as “First-time contributors” on pull requests they create, even when they’ve created many merged pull requests in the past.

For example, check out this pull request, which says the Dependabot bot is a first time contributor, even though it’s created lots of pull requests for the same repo in the past.


Thanks for the report, @greysteil – I’ll ask the team to investigate. :+1:


@izuzak - looks like this is now fixed, and can be closed. :tada:


Interesting. I don’t remember seeing any changes on our end to address this. :confused: But thanks for letting me know, @greysteil, and please ping us here if you notice this again. :v:
