I'm not sure than using the list for reviewing tag would work, there is
lot of packages and tags which make sense and we are busy enough without
starting discussing every tag. Should we try to limit the use of tags to
a determined set? Launchpad is supposed to filter the most used tags for
a package anyway.

Having "12348945 different tags" is not an issue if launchpad filter the
top used ones from the "noise". 

Maybe we should have a common "product rule", somebody suggested
something like "product-component" and discuss on the list
non-product-specific tags, like "easyfix" or "backtrace_needed" or
"to_forward"? Do we need to use a product namespace for tags or do they
apply to the context of the package browsed anyway?

For g-s-t I updated the titles and set tags too
