I'm sorry I don't have the time to participate personally, but should
you need something to complement Trove categories, there are several
facets in Debtags that are pretty well defined and useful.

These are general purpose facets that are imo ready for prime time, and
very useful: role, implemented-in, interface, system, uitoolkit,
works-with, works-with-format, hardware.

These are domain-specific facets that support important use cases:
accessibility, admin, devel, field, game, iso15924, mail, network,
protocol, office, science, security, sound, web.

The "use" facet is one with a lot of potential, but which requires more
