Dependabot pipelines being skipped if libraries PR contains "skip PR"

We use dependabot to update our NPM libraries, along with a Bitrise linting workflow triggered on PR open.

Often, third party libraries use “skip ci” in their commit messages.
Because dependabot includes the libraries commit message in its commit - the pipeline does not run and the PR hangs.

Is there any way to force this pipeline to run?

Might not be the best solution but this should “unblock” you: if you edit the PR’s description and you remove the skip ci from there then that should kick off a build.

Doh, yes that’s so obvious I hadn’t thought of it. We will do this for now. Thanks.
