I didn't mean to suggest re-opening that old issue. My feeling is that
there will be people on the list who have a community interest in this
project, and would welcome hearing the news. For some subscribers on
that list, it might even be the first they've heard of the project. 15
years is a long time not to be in touch.

In principle, yes; however, I don't have personal experience using the
method. What you are describing is what github calls "webhooks", a
method of pushing an HTTP POST request in response to a github event. This
url[1] gives a description of the feature, and does mention that it
includes a hook for pull-request events. The url has a long list of
other events that might be of interest to you. A more technical and
detailed presentation of the github webhook API can be found here[2].
