Can I make a Discord Webhook to the respository activity?

I use discord a lot, and have a system of documentation/logging for my limited work in Bforartists to update people. I found ways to automate tasks closed/created to push to Facebook and Twitter, but maybe we can automate this to Discord too. But to do this requires creating a webhook in the backend of the repository.

Can we make a discord webhook?

Here is a link to the instructions (it's easy)

Once it's created, a PM would suffice to get it linked.

Hey Draise.

Hey Draise.

The idea is not this bad. But please give me a few nights to really think about this.

My first thought was, i would not be so happy to make our tracker tasks so public. It's the bug and task tracker, not a public relations page. And i would hate  to care about every word that is written in it. Especially tasks that fails, or bugs. That's not really advertising us :)

Ah ok. Thought closed tasks in the tracker shows some nice opensource transparency, but yeah, might not always look great.. hm.

Ah ok. What inspired me was a twitter feed on the Blender Commit Logs. It doesn't have a lot of following, and I just thought it nice to have for those who aren't users of Github but want to stay updated on each bug, task and commit.
