Allow Releases to be associated with labels
Problem to solve
There are many different "types" of releases - major releases, minor releases, patch fix releases, security releases. Right now, there is no way to categorize or filter Releases on our Releases page.
This related to #26413, since it involves ways to customize the display of the Releases page.
In the future, we might add the ability to specify a "default" label filter to the Releases page, so that a project can highlight a particular "type" of release by default. For example, at GitLab we (currently) only populate our own Releases page with monthly releases; if a default label filter was implemented, we could instead populate this page with all GitLab releases (including patch and security releases) and set a label filter to showcase our monthly releases by default.

Permissions and Security
The ability to add labels to a Releases should be restricted to users who can edit Release details.
This page will need to be updated with documentation for this feature.
