I don't think we can add server hooks to github.

I don't think so, although someone with more experience might know better?

I could perhaps check in the commitbot, but I don't really want it to
reject changes. There's no good feedback mechanism, and it would
increase the amount of state it would need to manage. It might also
lead to issues if two modules are updated, but the commitbot only
accepts one.

Could perhaps add something to the '__boost_check_library__' tests,
which is at 'status/'.
