GHC label conventions

Hi Ben,

That's awesome! I'm glad to have something to refer to as on Trac I was
sometimes hesitant as to where something fell.

Two questions, well three.

1. Curious, is there no Linux label? Similarly no x86 and x64_86 labels?
2. The ARM one is that Arm (e.g. pre AArch32) or just all Arm
architectures? (I see no AArch64) either. Is this because we didn't have a
label for them in trac?

3. Slightly unrelated, on Phabricator I used to have a customized side bar
with helpful links such as this one. Can I do the same on GitLab?
