There are a number of long-running issues that serve as tracking or meta issues for broad bugs or features. These are useful to subscribe to since they have a lower volume of updates than the detail issues and also serve as a reference for the current state of development.

I propose to add a "meta-issue" label for these issues to assist finding them.

This is prompted by my recent discovery of the Go2 review meta issue which is closing after a year's operation. I follow the proposal meta issue and find it very informative. I wish I'd known about the Go2 review issue too.

Examples of issues that could use this label:

(Just to be clear, the Go 2 meta issue is not closing, just changing how it works. Nothing against this proposal, which seems fine to me.)

Adding to minutes. We can probably bikeshed the name for quite a long time and I'd rather not.
Is there any standard name used by lots of other projects for this?

No one has commented about the name. Discussed more at proposal meeting and are suggesting "umbrella".
Or we could take a leap and do "☂️".

I think umbrella is a good, generic term that covers the concept nicely.

Based on the (limited) discussion and the fact that this decision is easily changed later (unlike most proposals), this seems like a likely accept.

I've added the label to a few open issues where it seemed fitting. We can keep doing that in the future. Closing since this is done.
