    Pros: 

    Easy to set up, and then just quietly does its job

    Cons: 

    No Go support yet

    Changed the way we did dependency updates at GoCardless to be much more iterative. Went from monthly dependency update sessions that were grim to deploy to spending 2 minutes each morning reviewing dependency update PRs and always being up-to-date.

    Grey Baker has used this product for one year.

Very cool, I love automation. Can you say something about how this is different from greenkeeper (except greenkeeper being only javascript)? Also, since it is semi-related, but admittedly still a completely shameless plug: https://violinist.io/ if anyone is looking for the same for php (composer) dependencies :) Keep up the good work!

Why is it locked to yarn, seems an odd choice?
