Canary builds

This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Many projects have external code dependencies, a large amount of which is provided by open source projects. In order to ensure our builds are reproducible, we integrate against known versions of them, but that can mean that it takes a while for us to integrate against newer versions of these libraries leading to a larger merge effort down the line. One approach we have seen to avoid this is to have a nightly Canary Build which tries to pull in the latest version of all dependencies. If the build is green, we know we can change which versions we depend on.
