Removing priority labels from github

mattip
We currently have highest, high, normal, low, and lowest priority labels
for github issues/PRs. At the recent status meeting, we proposed
consolidating these to a single "high" priority label. Anything "low"
priority should be merged or closed since it will be quickly forgotten,
and no "normal" tag is needed.


With that, we (the BIDS team) would like to encourage reviewers to use
the "high" priority tag to indicate things we should be working on.

Any objections or thoughts?

Sounds like a plan, especially having practically meaningless tags
right now is no help. Most of them are historical and personally I have
only been using the milestones to tag things as high priority (very
occasionally).

+1 from me as well. I haven't been using these tags at all.

+1 I may have used one of the priority labels once or twice, I don't really remember. When I think something needs to be fixed or merged I generally add a benchmark.

benchmark <- milestone.
