Generating GitHub Issue Labels

If you use GitHub Issues for tracking work and bugs, then you probably also use labels for categorizing or highlighting those issues. You might also use labels for applying some sort of workflow.

I have a set of labels that I always want in my Issues database, and it's a pain to have to create these labels in the GitHub web UI. So, to fix this, I've written a python script that does this for me...

The definition of what labels I want, and which colour to use for them, is set up in a definitions.json file and the script then does all the hard work for me.
