Information about the maintenance of the vocabulary/tag data
How to change the vocabulary
The vocabulary is maintained at https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/debtags/vocabulary.git To change it (add or remove a tag/change descriptions, add/remove a facet) simply change this file and commit it (I am not sure who has write access there). Wait one day for the file to show up in the tagging interface.
How to rename a tag
As written by Enrico and not yet confirmed:
- Add the new tag to the vocabulary, wait a day for the site to pick up.
- Add the new tag to all packages that have the old tag:
$ wget https://debtags.debian.org/exports/stable-tags $ tagcoll grep old::tag unstable-tags -i|sed -e 's/$/: +new::tag/' > /tmp/patch $ debtags-submit-patch /tmp/patch
- Verify on the website that the packages do have the new tag.
- Remove the old tag from the vocabulary.
