Just to clarify:

I think if this way is chosen, the bot should be hosted by and be in control 
of KDE infrastructure. Which appears to be possible, as the source is provided 
under the Apache license:

https://github.com/imjasonh/nopullrequests

Otherwise it would be using one cloud service to fix a (intended?) flaw in 
other one.

Don´t know whether it works without a Google account tough as the "Let´s get 
started" link redirects to Google account login page.
