This plugin builds pull requests in github and report results.


When new pull request occures in project and author of the pull request isn't whitelisted, builder will ask "Can one of the admins verify this patch?" and one of the admins must add the author to whitelist with comment "this is ok to test".

If author of the pull request is whitelisted adding new pull request or new commit to existing pull request will start new rebuild.

New rebuild can be started also with comment "retest this please".
