    Kani Rust Verifier

    Project mention: CVE-2023-4863: Heap buffer overflow in WebP (Chrome) | | 2023-09-12

    > those applications need the proof for correctness so that more dangerous code---say, what would need `unsafe` in Rust---can be safely added

    There are actually already tools built for this very purpose in Rust (see Kani [1] for instance).

    Formal verification has a serious scaling problem, so forming programs in such a way that there are a few performance-critical areas that use unsafe routines seems like the best route. I feel like Rust leans into this paradigm with `unsafe` blocks.

    Project mention: Petri Net for tokio ? | /r/rust | 2023-09-05

    And a project uses it to check for deadlocks. but it doesn't work for async code, yet.

Updating dependencies is time-consuming.
Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.
