Update gaia-ui-tests.json automatically when the gaia-ui-tests repo changes

This bug will be used to track automatic updates performed by the "gaia-ui-tests-pushbot" (see bug 907240), which update the gaia-ui-tests.json file in gaia automatically when the gaia-ui-tests repo changes.
Whenever the repo is updated, the gaia-ui-tests-pushbot will automatically update the file tests/python/gaia-ui-tests.json in the gaia repo, like so:

This, in turn, will cause a gaia-pushbot update in TBPL, like so:

If a commit to gaia-ui-tests causes breakage in TBPL, the sheriff should backout the corresponding gaia commit as usual, which will reset the gaia-ui-tests.json pointer to its previous state.

If the commit message of this backout contains either the words "back" or "revert" (case-insensitive), the gaia-ui-tests-pushbot will stop automatic operation; it will resume after a manual commit which doesn't include either of those strings.

This is necessary since otherwise the next commit to gaia-ui-tests would trigger the gaia-ui-tests-pushbot to again update gaia-ui-tests.json, likely re-breaking the tests in TBPL.
See for details about where the pushbot is hosted.
Seems to be working well.

We really need to teach mcMerge to ignore anything from the pushbot(s).
