I finally had the time to watch the video. It's very interesting and
basically mirrors what I'm hoping is going to be possible for us once we
migrate to GitHub (i.e., automate as much as we can). While it doesn't
change any of the plans for reaching parity support to the hg workflow, it
is something to revisit when it comes time to look at adding new features
to our workflow (and maybe even share the bots if it happens to make sense).
