Manage labels

Provide a way to manage existing labels per project.

Possible actions:
- Remove a label at project level => the label should be removed from all issues
- Edit a label => all issues tagged with the old label are updated to use the new label

        ^This.
        Together with label custom colors and ability to select labels from dropdown rather than type them down are the most important suggestions IMHO.

        Bordei, that would be great, you can include the color customization, that is marked AMR too. Please be aware that many small merge requests will be merged quicker than one large one. Consider sending incremental merge requests (replace gem, add management, add color).

        I'm planning on working on this feature.
        I'll also include the customizable lable color if everything is OK with you.

        Merging labels especially when multiple people cannot spell ;)

        Merging existing labels might be useful in some cases, too.

        There's one more thing that would be very helpful which fits pretty good into this suggestion:
        Only show labels that are active for "Open", "Closed" or "All". If the user selects "Open" on the issues page to show all open issues still _all_ labels that have ever been used are listed. I would expect to only see those that are used in open issues.

        The possible actions detailed above (remove label, edit label) would be immensely helpful in managing some of our projects where we've accumulated a lot of tag cruft. Some of our projects have so many tags that they're basically useless for us.

        Being able to set label colours would be nice too.
