Do we just need "triaged: bug" and "triaged: feature"? Or should we also
have "triaged: documentation" and "triaged: question" (so that there is
one for every corresponding "issue" label)?

Bugs, features and documentation issues are resolved by
fixing/implementing them, or marking them with a resolved label. Should
we also have a "resolved: answered" label where we believe we have
answered a question? Possibly also one where there has been no answer,
but we're closing it because the question is stale?

I updated the "closed: *" labels to say "resolved: *" instead.
