Re: Tag types - reorganizing all tags - task force
"property" doesn't work, because the description is also a property, as
are the dependencies, the version number...
So the attached tags are a property, too.
We probably could use the term "quality":
1. The condition of being of such and such a sort as
distinguished from others; nature or character relatively
considered, as of goods; character; sort; rank.
Syn: Property; attribute; nature; peculiarity; character;
sort; rank; disposition; temper.
I dislike using such a generic term. "Tag" kind of implies that someone
has attached them, so they are subjective. I like that.
property, attribute: too generic
nature: we're talking about "artificial" things, "nature" has some weird
sound here... it has unappropriate other meanings.
peculiarity, character: too "individualistic"
sort, rank: bad because of "sorting" - we don't have a complete order
disposition probably the same.
temper: sounds like they would modify not describe the package.
