  • Is there a tag legend planned? I've just added a few tags for tests and had the idea of a list of tags which is commented.

        tag: test_version_defined
        comment: tests if the module defined a VERSION

    That way the number of tags might be reduced and actually be useful...

    Alright, I know, the others don't do it ;-)
    • I have never used any tagging system before, I just signed up to [] before I implemented this to see how it works.
      and asked the folks on [] what do they think.

      On you can write notes per item and not per tag as I think you mean.

      On CPAN::Forum, there is a table with the list of all the tags and then a 3-way join table connecting module-user-tag, meaning that several people can share the same tag.

      I can add some kind of legend but I am not sure if that should be added to the 3-way join table to make it personal and trackable (I am afraid of spammers) or to add it to the list of tags in which case, I am back to one of my worries:

      • Do I allow anyone to change the note?
      • Do I track changes?
      • ...
      • Yes, I mean 'notes per tag'.

        I don't think seperating the tag note from the tag name makes much sense, so why not put it in the same table as the name?

        I'd allow any user who is logged in to change a note. We're all reasonable people, aren't we? ;-)

        Tracking changes in this case doesn't make much sense, I think.
