How to use Github Issue Labels


Github Issue Labels exist to organize the project workflow in a way that allows for efficient decentralized and asynchronous collaboration.

When you write, review an issue, you can add multiple labels as appropriate.

When you want to contribute something, you can look at the open issues to see what is needed or requested in the project as well as match up something to your skill-set or experience level.

Typical labels

  • bug : Something isn’t working
  • documentation : Improvements or additions to documentation
  • duplicate : This issue or pull request already exists
  • enhancement : New feature or request
  • good first issue : Good for newcomers
  • help wanted : Extra attention is needed
  • invalid : This doesn’t seem right
  • question : Further information is requested
  • wontfix : This will not be worked on
