It's the making a git branch somewhere that I'm interested in, not the
Github part of it. If someone wants to tie GH CI to that and send out
replies to patches, then fine. We can use them if useful or ignore if

0-day is a bit unpredictable in terms of response time. I often only
get reports after things land in linux-next which is a bit late IMO.
What is run and the priorities are all opaque.
