For what it’s worth, both Apple and Microsoft have GitHub bots that tag pull 
requests as being from people who have or haven’t signed their CLA, so that 
developers can review contributions from other people, but can see a ’NeedsCLA’ 
tag in the pull request and so shouldn’t merge them if the legal stuff isn’t 
sorted.  Once someone has signed the CLA, the bot remembers and future pull 
requests from the same contributor are suitably tagged and can be merged 
immediately that they pass code review.

For libobjc2, we’ve been using the Travis-CI integration with GitHub, so that 
each commit gets the test suite run on Linux and macOS.  This also works on 
pull requests, so you can see if the patch causes any test failures (including 
tests added with the patch, so if a pull request comes with a test case for an 
issue, you can see if it actually fixes it, without having to build).

Coverity also has GitHub integration and will run their static analysis tools 
for free on FOSS projects.  They don’t really know about Objective-C, but they 
might catch things in some of the C/C++ parts of the projects.
