  • Fix retry attempt to resolve all rules.
  • Sometimes executing a fix for a rule may introduce new errors to rules that have already been "fixed". Dependencies can be set up to avoid this issue but we will also try to be smart and attempt to retry to resolve. In the event that we retry to resolve, we need to fetch dependencies since this time around we do not have all rules available, only the error rules
