The work group met 10 days ago and decided to tackle tags in the
following categories:

* Integration tags

Those describe whether the project is integrated with something else.
Sean Dague proposed to kick off this category with "devstack support"
tags, and proposed them at https://review.openstack.org/#/c/203785/

* Team tags

Team tags communicate whether the people behind a given project form a
sustainable team. Russell Bryant agreed to draft tags about team size
and team monoculture to further improve on our communication there.

* Contract tags

Contract tags are promises that project teams make about their
deliverables. For example, I'll draft three tags describing feature/API
deprecation policies that projects teams may opt to follow. These
communicate clearly what to expect from a given project. In this same
category, Zane Bitter will draft a tag about forward-compatible
configuration files.

* QA tags

QA tags communicate what a given project actually tests. Does it do full
stack testing, upgrade testing, partial upgrade testing ?

* Horizontal team support tags

These communicate which projects are directly supported by horizontal
teams. We already have the "release:managed" tag and the
"vulnerability:managed" tags to describe which projects are directly
supported by the release management or the vulnerability management
teams. I'll draft a tag to describe which projects have stable branches
that follow the stable branch maintenance team policy.

Sorry for the late report,
