Create GitHub/GitLab PR comment notifications by default for new sites when connecting to a repo

To make getting the latest information about your deploys even easier, Netlify now creates GitHub/GitLab pull request comment notifications by default for new sites when connecting to a repo.

What’s changed?

When connecting a site to a Git repository, Netlify will post a comment to all new pull and merge requests (example image below). Previously, only the commit status hooks were enabled by default.

Here’s an example of a pull request comment notification from the Netlify bot:

You can adjust these notifications from your Site Deploy notifications settings. To enable/disable pull request comment notifications, please visit Site settings > Build & deploy > Deploy notifications and select your preferred notification settings.
