Yes, that makes sense. Then it is assured that the 'issue: *' labels are
set only for issues which have not been triaged yet.

Note also that the 'triaged: bug', 'triaged: feature', and 'triaged: documentation'
labels also make sense for pull request, in particular w.r.t. the question whether
a pull request can be backported or not.

It might be useful to add more reasons for why the issue is resolved.
OTOH we should watch out that we don't create too many labels.

     "resolved: fixed"
     "resolved: answered"

For the unresolved issues, an 'unresolved: *' label makes sense:

     "unresolved: <some reason>"

Ok, I already saw it :-)
