commented Jun 11, 2018

The lesson infrastructure committee unanimously approved the proposal of using the same set of labels across all our repositories during its last meeting on May 23rd, 2018.

This repository has now been converted to use the standard set of labels.

If this repository used the previous set of recommended labels by Software Carpentry, they have been converted to the new one using the following rules:

SWC legacy labels New 'The Carpentries' labels
bug type:bug
discussion type:discussion
enhancement type:enhancement
help-wanted help wanted
newcomer-friendly good first issue
template-and-tools type:template and tools
work-in-progress status:in progress

The label instructor-training was removed as it is not used in the workflow of certifying new instructors anymore. The label question was left as is when it was in use, and removed otherwise. If your repository used custom labels (and issues were flagged with these labels), they were left as is.

The lesson infrastructure committee hopes the standard set of labels will make it easier for you to manage the issues you receive on the repositories you manage.

The lesson infrastructure committee will evaluate how the labels are being used in the next few months and we will solicit your feedback at this stage. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please leave a comment on this issue.

-- The Lesson Infrastructure subcommittee

PS: we will close this issue in 30 days if there is no activity.
