Changes (by johnjamesjacoby):

 * keywords:  2nd-opinion => 2nd-opinion has-patch


 A few caveats to this idea:

 * The comment author URL field is optional, and having a default value in
 there is a user-impacting change
 * We will probably want logic to avoid saving `https://` alone as the
 comment author URL. This field is pretty lenient as far as input
 requirements are concerned, which is probably for legacy reasons beyond
 the scope of my suggestion.
 * It's obviously less convenient for people who have `http://` only URLs.
 That's also ''kind-of'' the point, though only as a friendly suggestion,
 obviously. <3
