Subject: [gentoo-dev] Are tags just sets?
Date: Sun, 26 Jun 2011 07:06:30
Here's a completely different way of doing tags:

First, standardise sets. We probably want to go with a format along the
lines of:

    eapi = 4
    description = Monkeys


where eapi has to be on the first line.

Second, make a bunch of sets named kde-tag, editors-tag, xml-tag,
monkeys-tag etc.

Third, make tools that allow browsing, searching etc able to list
things by tag (or sets in general).

Advantages: dead easy to implement, backwards compatible, we need sets

Disadvantages: doesn't use some horribly convoluted system of XML,
wikis and web 2.0.
