[devel at bb.net] ticket 2887 & 3270

Bug 2887 is a Buildbot feature -- take the existing github changesource and
add make it more flexible, able to respond to more than just pull
requests.  Have a look at the github web hooks documentation for the other
kinds of events.

Bug 3270 is about using Buildbot to test its own pull requests, rather than
Travis-CI (and now Appveyor and Circle and Codecov and Mentionbot and all
the rest).  This requires some additional features in Buildbot.  Just off
the top of my head, that means some kind of security model (so we're not
building arbitrary code from anyone on github) and a reporter that posts
build results to a Github PR, similar to how Travis, etc. do.
