[python-committers] New workflow - some questions

I'm just looking at doing some work for the first time under the new
workflow. Most things look fine - I'm familiar with git/github, so
there's nothing startling in there, but I do have a few small

1. Section 32.2 in the Git bootcamp section - is there any reason to
use git at github URLs for the clones? I normally always use
https://github.com URLs, as they work with my proxy at work.

2. Section 32.10, I generally use "Compare and create pull request"
from my clone's github page, as that seems simpler. Is there any
reason for starting from the cpython repo - the process working that
way (which I wasn't even aware of!) seems more complex. I can't see
that it matters much, but I wouldn't want to mess up a PR if there
*is* a difference in the results.

3. The new blurb tool - I presume I'll need to set that up
somewhere/somehow, and use it to create a news entry. But I can't find
any docs on it at all :-(

There may be other stuff - I've been watching the core-workflow list,
and it feels like there's some awfully complex stuff being discussed.
But so far it looks pretty straightforward and "as expected" - which
is a credit to Brett and the others who've set all this up!
