*# ''Issue 1: So I work alongside Jonathan at Lotus / IBM and we have several systems in development each with their own tag implementations.  All of them have their own pages that are dedicated to listing the things within them that have been tagged by a given tag.  Some of these systems use a url notation that ends in /tag but many (the majority) do not.  We are looking to have a standard way that these systems can sematically tag their tags and relTag looked very promising.  However, given that some of the systems produce tag urls that do not end in /tag we are a little stuck.    It would be extremely hard and somewhat impracticle to get all these groups to ensure that their tag urls end in /tag.  Are you at all considering another approach.  We'd love to use relTag within our products, but at the moment we can't.  Looking for some help / guidance.''

relTag Issues

These are externally raised issues about rel-tag with broadly varying degrees of merit. Thus some issues are REJECTED for a number of obvious reasons (but still documented here in case they are re-raised), and others contain longer discussions. Some issues may be ACCEPTED and perhaps cause changes or improved explanations in the spec. Submitted issues may (and probably will) be edited and rewritten for better terseness, clarity, calmness, rationality, and as neutral a point of view as possible. Write your issues well. — Tantek
