[Starting up this discussion again that took place back in September 2018 on the ML]
Current PRs from core devs get the
awaiting merge label. I did that since the
awaiting labels are meant to help represent what is keeping a PR from being merged. But it has been brought up that all PRs should be reviewed and so that labelling isn’t accurate (and some people want
awaiting merge so that core dev PRs are treated the same as external PRs, and others want
awaiting core review since it’s assumed core devs really want another core dev to review the change). I figured to resolve this it was easiest to just take a poll of people’s preference.
