comment Is the action of accepting a pull request on Github vulnerable to race conditions?
As I said in the comments of my answer, this test does not prove that there is no race condition. This test shows that GitHub makes a test before merging the pull request. But what if, Malice's commit is received in the mean time? The delay might be very very short, but this is a race condition. And you said you don't like lucky-based security.

I don't want to be obstinated, but you can't make a simple test that proves there is no race condition. If, by chance, you figure out a race condition, then you can say "there is a race condition". However, if you can't figure out any race condition does not mean there is none.

If you can't accept a hope, I'm afraid you should directly ask GitHub. I don't think anyone here has access to the source code, as it is proprietary.

Maybe "I trust" would be more accurate. I don't have access to GitHub 's source code so I can't do much more.

Yes you are right, I forgot this. This means I could save my credentials on a recorder to authenticate faster. :D

Right, in my case I am using a cellphone (which adds the weakness of having to trust the app, but it is not the question). However I am also interested in other phone types.
