Label prefix that action doesn't touchSee original GitHub issue
This action is super promising, but this is giving me headaches:
… and will delete any other labels.
We tend to have a prefix for labels like
topic/* that is dynamically used by contributors to group and collect related issues. The labels are created ad hoc, and are regularly removed when no labels are connected any more.
It would be awesome if the action could handle such a “wildcard” label and would not delete such labels. (It could, if set in the configuration, update the color though to fix manual mistaked that were made when creating the labels).

I added a
delete input in 3.0.0 of this action which if set to true will delete any labels not found in the JSON file. This is set to false by default. This resolved the “don’t delete anything mode” portion of this issue so I’m going to close the issue.
Something like this or even a utility that allows you easily to merge existing labels with your default set of labels before running this for the first time. The one thing that prevents me from just using this all over the place is that I don’t want to clobber any existing labels on my existing repositories.
