Fill the "Commit" and "Removed" fields of doc/README.scrapyard
The file doc/README.scrapyard is used to keep track of removed boards.
When we remove support for boards, we are supposed to add entries to
doc/README.scrapyard leaving "Commit" and "Removed" fields blank.
The "Commit" field is the commit hash in which the board was removed
and the "Removed" is the date at which the board was removed. Those
two are known only after the board removal patch was applied, thus they
need to be filled in later.
This effectively means that the person who removes other boards is
supposed to fill in the blank fields before adding new entries to
That is a really tedious task that should be automated.
This script fills the blank fields of doc/README.scrapyard for you!
The "Commit" and "Removed" fields must be "-". The other fields should
have already been filled in by a former commit.

tempfile.mkstemp() is often used to create a unique temporary file,

deleting the file when done with it.
Even when the caller errors out on the way, the temporary file must
be deleted somehow. The idea here is that we delete the file in
the destructor of this class because the destructor is always
invoked when the instance of the class is freed.
