You're right, it is possible to subscribe to certain tags using
feeds :-)

If a question related to the package foo have a foo tag, and if the
foo's package maintainer subscribe to the foo tag feed, and if he/she
answer questions about the foo package, Shapado will work as a QTS.

  If for example a package maintainer is responsible for foo and bar,
maybe build a feed like:


Bad News: Not all the users use tags or use the proper tags.
Good News: Moderators are able to retag questions.
Bad News: If the system keeps growing (as we hope) the current
moderators are not enough.
Good News: Maybe we'll find more volunteers to help us as moderators.
