I've created a couple of new tags on github for issues and pull requests: "idea", "request", "testing requested", "work in progress". All these should be more or less self-explaining, maybe with the exception of "request": don't know if we are really going to need that, but I put it in for requests that aren't either feature requests or requests for testing.

Two additional labels I created some time ago: "documentation" (pls use for issues/PRs concerning any kind of docs, be it technical like docs for the Python interface, FOCS, or game documentation like the quickstart guide, etc.), "scripting" (pls use for all issues/PRs concerning FOCS and Python scripts).

Objections, corrections, suggestions, comments?

Based on the comments, not sure if https://github.com/freeorion/freeorion/pull/576 is in a state ready to be tested yet.

Maybe split scripting into FOCS and AI?

Well, I inferred that from the "[Testing required]" remark in the PR title. But if you want, I can remove that tag.

Hm, I'm a bit torn. On the one hand I've been considering a split between FOCS and Python myself (which also makes much sense), on the other hand I don't want to create too many tags, otherwise the tag list gets cluttered/confusing. But an "AI" tag probably makes sense, you can then combine that with "scritping" if you want to specifically refer to Python AI scripts?

What do the others think?

#576 specifically is testable,b ut at a very early stage, it's going to need some serious work to balance it, plus the whole of the fighter setup needs bughunting, etc. I've got some work done on a first pass at balancing the individual parts (and it was nice to see the AI adapt designs based on me changing costs and strengths of some things), etc.

I think it's a prime example of a good 'testing required' tag as it can't be merged in until it's been heavily tested.

On other issues, I'd like to see a separation of FOCs stuff and AI stuff, for a number of reasons but partially because FOCs stuff can be given to a brand new contributor who may not really know how to code at all, whereas AI stuff is advanced need to know how it works and work with the team stuff.

I can't really contribute to AI stuff, but am heavily involved in FOCS stuff which is where our new scripters want tob e pointed at, so I'd like to see a split (we have a 'scripting' folder as well as an AI folder within default now so it makes sense).
