Issue Labels
When labeling issues, we have tried to opt for clarity over brevity.

Label Prefixes

The majority of issue labels are given a prefix to help with categorisation. The exceptions are labels that carry meaning across organisations and projects, e.g "good-first-issue" and "help-wanted".
    [type]
    [state]
