> 	type:enhancement
> 	type:feature request

The type:enhancement is just an historical relict IMHO - before we had rewritten the labels, nearly *every* issue or pull request had the label type:enhancement - therefore I wanted to split that up in several things (e.g. the topic: labels).

In my view, the label type:feature request should be used in the future and type:enhancement should be deleted. (But also, not every type:enhancement should be type:feature request)

Hm.. They were initially so short and i've rewritten them to be more explicit - i liked it better that way. But on the other hand, the meaning isn't lost when we would use has: or attached: - therefore i don't mind the transition. 

> 	"more info from user" -> "more info"

I also made this change, because i wanted to make clear that the reporting user has to do something - before we can further work on this issue. (its kind of a "blocker" label)

Ah, yeah. +1

+1 I also forget the meaning of "backlog" a lot.

Maybe "needs:review" instead of just "review" ? I like the explicitness. But generally i like this idea.
