Find all issues where neither labelA or labelB is set?

We use GH as a minimal issue-tracking tool. We mark issues as either feature, bug, enhancement, etc when we receive them from the user.

As such, any issues with _none_ of these set have not formerly been acknowledged.

Can I save a search for such things, somehow?

The search documentation specifies how you can search for the absence of a label: -label:label-name

Because all search operands are inherently ANDed together, it is easy to search for the absence of multiple labels. Here’s an example from atom/atom. If you delete the  -label:help-wanted from the search, you’ll see an additional result show up at the top of the list.

I hope that helps!
