Cordova does not use labels for version, milestone or release tracking. GitHub Milestones are used for that.
The following defines the label names, label description and label color in use:
The default labels created with new repositories offer a good baseline:
bug: Something isn't working
duplicate: This issue or pull request already exists
good first issue: Good for newcomers
help wanted: Extra attention is needed
invalid: This doesn't seem right
question: Further information is requested - to be replaced by (or renamed to)
wontfix: This will not be worked on
The label names
good first issue and
help wanted have special meaning on GitHub.
The list above has some
strike through text. These are our changes to the default labels, so they don't clash with out custom labels below.
info-needed: Further information is requested
feature: New functionality that requires new code
discussion: Creator is open to suggestions or wants to discuss how something should be implemented
support: Support questions that want to understand how something works, need help debugging their individual problem etc. are closed and tagged with this label.
For plugin repositories it makes sense to categorize Issues - e.g. a bug report or feature request - or Pull Requests by its platform:
As the labels above are not distributed to all Cordova repositories automatically yet, they have to be created on demand. Contributors of Apache Cordova are able to just create any label they need manually.
