Sounds great!
Thanks, Brett.

I have now done a test deployment of the bot to Heroku and it works! So unless I hear otherwise I will ask the infrastructure team for another Heroku app, move the code to be under the Python org, and then turn on the bot for the cpython repo. Since it's so easy to override I will make it a required check after we have lived with the bot for a few days to make sure it works as expected.

+1 from me.

And as a break from some political dealings I went ahead and implemented the "trivial" label support. So the bot is now coded to follow a pattern that I assume we will continue to use if we use this bot and add more status checks.

Regardless of the practical details, I kind of like the idea of having
the Knights as a grumpy bot looking for a shrubbery(/CLA), and Sir
Bedevere as a happier, helpful bot that only complains when it gets
confused by a lack of information :)

:) Yeah, I was very happy when I got the inspiration for the name since it seemed to fit rather well.
