I'm on GitHub. I can search like this:


The query looks like this:

is:issue is:open label:"Type: Plugin" 

Now many labels contains the word Type: in the beginning. Can I match just the first characters to match issues that has tags like Type: Plugin and Type: Core?

Unfortunately there is no wildcard search for labels on GitHub:

Additionally there is also unfortunately no way to combine several label: filters with OR, so if you know the list of labels you are looking for, you can not even construct a string that includes them all as this will only search for issues containing both labels.


According to the docs you can search issues tagged with different labels:

'label:bug,resolved matches issues with the label "bug" or the label "resolved."'
