Bug#805451: Bugs/Reporting: please document for each pseudo-header in which address@bugs.debian.org it can be used

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: wishlist


whenever I want to use pseudoheaders in bug interaction I find myself
missing a reference documentation of them, stating what they do, their
exact syntax, and which are accepted by which part of the BTS.

For example, can I use Version when I mail to nnnn-done@bugs.debian.org?
https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Developer#closing says that I can, but
https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting#pseudoheader does not mention it.

Can I use Control: when I mail nnnn@bugs.debian.org?
https://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting#control it documents in which
address it can be used, and I find it very useful.

Can I use Tags: when I mail nnnn@bugs.debian.org? I cannot find a
mention of it, and I do not know where to look.

Most times I want to interact with the BTS and Do Things Right The First
Time, I end up asking such questions to #debian-devel and feeling
frustrated for the need of asking such apparent trivialities.

I wish there was a coincise reference to them: it would help me greatly.

Thank you,
