Issue Lifecycle

All issues should have a state and type scoped label attached to them. The following is a proposed lifecycle an issue should have:
    1.
    Pending - Issues that are newly created and haven't been reviewed.
    2.
    Accepted - Issues that are newly created and have been accepted after review.
    3.
    In Progress - Issues that are currently being worked on.
    4.
    In Review - Issues that require a proposed solution to be reviewed.
    5.
    In Testing - Issues that require a proposed solution to be tested.
    6.
    Completed - Issues that are closed with a working solution.
This will cover a standard lifecycle of an issue. There are other state labels for issues that are not being worked on:
    On Hold - Issues that were at least accepted, that should not be worked on at the moment.
    Blocked - Issues that cannot be worked on due to other factors linked to it.
    Revision Needed - Issues that need to be revised before being accepted.
