I think we should evaluate our modules and define together which ones are well tested, widely-used so we can tag them "core" (ie:
puppet-nova). Otherwise I would suggest using "incubating" tag (ie:

[Rockyg] Tags are great, but please don't overload them!  "Core" should be reserved or even never used, as it has so many (and so loaded) meanings.  Perhaps follow some of the other suggestions: experimental for new projects until they are "mature," then remove the tag.  The assumption should be that *unless* something is labeled, it should be considered well tested and widely used.

The good stuff shouldn't need labels; the new stuff should have the warning labels.
