There are many open PRs in Jenkins core repo. Currently it's very hard to
perform reviews, because for every PR you need to go into and to see the
current status by going through the conversation. It would be great so
somehow show current statuses in the PR list.

I propose to add the following labels:

   - needs-review (dark yellow)
   - needs-fix (orange)
   - needs-testcase (light orange)
   - needs-docs (ligh orange)
   - ready-for-merge (violet)
      - Indicates that the PR has passed the review (e.g. "+1s and no
      responses during several days")
      - A merger can merge the PR & squash it

A similar approach is being used in Jenkins CERT team for a while. It seems
to be effective.

The approach could be also used in plugins. In the long-term it may be
possible to add overall PR status dashboards, which may be helpful for the

If there is no concerns, I'll go forward and add labels.

Best regards, Oleg
