We’ve had a similar check on pip for awhile now and we’ve had no real complaints. The label to mark a change as not needing a news file is useful, we also let you add a empty news file marked as trivial for the PR authors to indicate that their change doesn’t deserve a news file entry. It has worked well so far and we’ve gotten better news file coverage then we previously had.
