[openstack-dev] [infra] Getting notified of closed pull requests on github?

Every now and then I go look at github to see what pull requests have 
been auto-closed there, since it seems most of the repos under 
https://github.com/openstack/(.*) auto-close pull requests (with 
messages telling people to use gerrit);

I'm wondering though if there is anyway to notify the maintainers in 
gerrit that this has happened?

For example anytime a PR is closed on say:


A email could be sent to all of:


Letting those members there know that a PR was closed, and so that those 
members can then try to avoid losing a contribution from a person that 
was just trying to do 'good' (by making a PR in the first place).

Is anything like that possible, it would very much help in *not* losing 
these types of contributions (and new members to our community) because 
currently I have a feeling that most people don't even know that such 
pull requests are getting closed automagically.

For example:

(3 here)
- https://github.com/openstack/nova/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aclosed (alot here)
- https://github.com/openstack/glance/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aclosed (3 here)
- .... and so on
