Topic: Adding new WG specific labels to issue tracker

Esteban Küber (Oct 04 2019 at 19:00, on Zulip):

I would like to add some labels to better triage A-diagnostics tickets. Some examples would be D-papercut, D-obscure, D-newcomer-roadblock, D-confusing, D-misleading, `D-verbose, etc.
Who should I consult before creating any and does it seem like a good/bad idea?

Looks like a good idea, issues about diagnostics are a sizable portion of all issues (1/6 according to labels, but I suspect more), so it would be good to prioritize them somehow (and close the low priority ones as wontfix once in a while).

@Esteban Küber just do it I'd say

I am a big fan of more labels and you should feel free to freely add labels without checking in first

simulacrum (Oct 04 2019 at 20:17, on Zulip):

@Esteban Küber further more, if you want to, edit triagebot.toml to let anyone add them

I think on one hand this is nice but on the other hand right now everything looks tidy and very well organized, maybe we can allow through triagebot certain specific labels, like prefixed with U- (for user defined) or C- (for custom)

simulacrum (Oct 04 2019 at 20:25, on Zulip):

Hm? Yes, I was saying "add these specific labels to that list"

simulacrum (Oct 04 2019 at 20:26, on Zulip):

not add a category or w/e

@Esteban Küber I have tried to have a convention of using the "full name" of the working group for labels like these. Did you already create them? Might I suggest Diagnostics-Foo instead? (Did I say that already, I forget?)

varkor (Oct 22 2019 at 13:44, on Zulip):

the labels have already been created, but can be renamed

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 14:03, on Zulip):

we could also make a prefix for "wg" labels -- e.g., instead of AsyncAwait-Foo have WG-AsyncAwait-Foo

nikomatsakis (Oct 22 2019 at 14:04, on Zulip):

(although I'd like to stop calling things working groups but that's neither here nor there)

Esteban Küber (Oct 22 2019 at 23:12, on Zulip):

@nikomatsakis I already created them as D-*, but we can rename them
