[Pulp-dev] Github Required Checks

Jeremy, I don't think David was continuing our line of discussion on
policy, but rather rebutting the original idea that Github's "required
checks" be enforced for all plugins.  That goes back to the whole
difference between having a policy that requires green tests and making it
physically impossible to merge PRs without them.  Maybe some plugins want a
policy and some plugins are fine with hard required checks on Github, but
the latter shouldn't be enforced on everyone - is what I think David was

Also, my understanding is that pulp_deb is not strictly under our control,
but that we're hosting it specifically to let misa use our QA
infrastructure, and because we might want to productise it at some point in
the future.
