Hopefully a pull-request can appear as a Git branch, so the maintainer
who can't or doesn't want to use a browser can use "git diff/merge" and
such to view and accept a pull-request.

To review/comment on a pull-request, you'll need something else, and
typically this is a web UI.  Most/all of those are pretty much unusable in
something like eww/lynx.  But there's a good chance someone can code up
an ad-hoc Emacs interface to the system (something like sx.el).
