This bot will crawl the branches, collect the dependencies for each branch, and topologically sort them based on their dependencies. Following that it will attempt to merge each dependency into the dependent in this order (this is mainly done so that we get less merges/failures if one of the root merges fails).

Hi Jorn, thanks for the contribution! :clap:

Just a quick suggestion after a brief look - how about moving `Edge` to its own file, `Edge.java` and also move `tsort` into its own class, `TopologicalSort` (in `TopologicalSort.java`)? That way you should have a fairly easy time to add a new test class, `TopologicalSortTests`, with some unit tests for the topological sort
