### Subject labels (~wiki, ~"container registry", ~ldap, ~api, etc.)
### Subject labels
Subject labels are labels that define what area or feature of GitLab this issue
hits. They are not always necessary, but very convenient.
Examples of subject labels are ~wiki, ~ldap, ~api,
~issues, ~"merge requests", ~labels, and ~"container registry".
If you are an expert in a particular area, it makes it easier to find issues to
work on. You can also subscribe to those labels to receive an email each time an
issue is labeled with a subject label corresponding to your expertise.
Examples of subject labels are ~wiki, ~"container registry", ~ldap, ~api,
~issues, ~"merge requests", ~labels, and ~"container registry".
Subject labels are always all-lowercase.
### Team labels (~"CI/CD", ~Discussion, ~Quality, ~Platform, etc.)

Team labels specify what team is responsible for this issue.

people.

~Geo, ~Gitaly, ~Monitoring, ~Platform, ~Release, ~"Security Products", ~"Configuration", and ~"UX".
