There is currently no such trigger, but it's easy to produce[1] a
package list for such a tag and check if there are patterns emerging.

Also, once a new tag gets proposed in a facet, listing the *::TODO
packages in that facet is a good way to find packages that might need
that tag.

I've long wanted to have a view in the Debtags website to examine the
state of *:TODO packages for a given facet.  It's not very... enjoyable
to build that with the current backend, so it's yet another thing that
I've postponed until I redesign the website.



wget wget http://debtags.alioth.debian.org/tags/tags-current.gz
zcat tags-current.gz | tagcoll -i grep role::TODO | sort -u
