    Description

      There is a Jira TODO bot that scrapes the codebase for TODOs that reference closed tickets. Frequently, I don't find out about these TODOs until I have already closed the ticket. It then takes time to triage the ticket, etc.

      It would be extremely useful to have a commit-queue task (or even a sometimes-enabled patch build task) as a line of defense. It should fail when there is an outstanding TODO in the code that references your ticket number. I don't know what the current bot does. We should check with the TPMs for the current script.

      I assume it just uses a regex like this: TODO.*<ticket>
