Check Appendix A5, near the end if it, there are examples on how to use
`org-agenda-skip-function', and it includes the option to
select on or against a regular expression. You need something like
'(org-agenda-skip-entry-if 'notregexp "^\\*+\\<Resolve\\>))
Note that I have anchored the regexp at the beginning of the headline
"^\\*+", to make sure that it only matches in the headline and not
in the tree.
