changeset-bot

This bot will comment on PRs saying that either a user might need to add a changeset(note that PRs changing things like documentation generally don't need a changeset)or say that the PR is good and already has a changeset.

Sometimes, a contributor won't add a changeset to a PR but you might want to merge in the PR without having to wait on them to add it. To address this, this bot adds a link with the filename pre-filled to add a changeset so all you have to do is write the changeset and click commit.

When writing the changeset, it should look something like this with the packages that are being released in the YAML front matter with associated semver bump types and the summary of the changes in markdown.
