Thanks Dustin for the clarification.

I've taken a look at the list of possible events and am
not sure which ones Buildbot (wrt ticket 2887) would
care about (well aside for the 'create' branch/tag,
which buildbot should try to do a build on the
created branch).

As for ticket 3270, I'm somewhat confused (probably because
my understanding is still lacking).  With the github
pull_request handler in the github hook, wouldn't buildbot
already be set to test the pull requests?
