Well, this is largely what GitGitGadget does 
(https://gitgitgadget.github.io), and we could go that route, sure. I'm 
reluctant only because, quoth:

  GitGitGadget itself is a GitHub App that is backed by an Azure 
  Function written in pure Javascript which in turn triggers an Azure 
  Pipeline written in Typescript (which is really easy to understand and 
  write for everybody who knows even just a little Javascript), 
  maintained at https://github.com/gitgitgadget/gitgitgadget.

I have zero familiarity with any of the above. That said, we do have a 
bunch of CI engineers working at the LF, and I can probably avail myself 
of their expertise if we decide to set this up.
