A list of current sub-teams

Bot Sub-Team


Develop and manage the conda-forge migration bot and all related tooling. Also manages and deploys migrations themselves.




The migration and autotick bot is now a central part of the conda-forge ecosystem. This subteam has the right and responsibility to manage and develop the general operation of the bot. This includes building new migrators, fixing migration related bugs, and tooling. Example migrations that can happen include:

  • Compiler bumps

  • Python version bump

  • R version bump

  • Build number bumps of the ecosystem when a pinned package version updates and there is a binary incompatibility which necessitate downstream rebuilds.

  • Automatically version bumping of feedstocks when the package releases a new version.

For large scale (affecting >20% of packages) this sub-team will inform and discuss with the core team about the upcoming migration prior to starting the migration.

Packages and tools that fall under the purview of the bot subteam include:

  • cf-scripts

  • libcflib

  • libcfgraph

  • cf-graph

  • circle-worker

And other parts of the conda-forge ecosystem.
