This bot is meant to help identify issues with a CPython pull request.
What the bot does:
Identifies missing bugs.python.org issue numbers in the title
If no b.p.o issue number is found the status fails and the "Details" link points to the relevant section of the devguide.
Links to bugs.python.org
If an issue number is found then the "Details" link points to the relevant issue itself, making it easier to navigate from PR to issue.
Identifies missing news entry
Misc/NEWS.d entry is found or the news entry is formatted incorrectly
and the issue doesn't have the
skip news label, the status fails and a relevant
description label is added to it.
Closes invalid PRs
Closes PRs that try to merge a maintenance branch into the master branch, adds
invalid label, and posts a relevant message.
Labels PRs for docs

Copies master labels to backport
Copies labels from master PRs to backport PRs
Aside: where does the name come from?
Since this bot is about identifying pull requests that need changes, it seemed fitting to name it after Sir Bedevere who knew how to identify a witch.
