debtags facet for sections (Re: Sections - especially section:kde and section:gnome)
I don't understand why you suggest creating a debtags facet replacing
sections, except if you plan to give exclusive control on it to the
archive maintenance team as opposed to the rest of the tags. Most
sections seem to have already a corresponding tag (but it would be good
to check that all useful sections have a corresponding tag if that was
not done already).
IMO, it would make sense to merge Debian sections into a debtags facet
so that you can have multiple sections when it makes sense. The facet
could still be controlled by ftpmasters if that was desired.
could use that facet to keep a logical tree but a package could then
appear in multiple sections.
