I know you're rarely shy about giving feedback but I'm curious if we're
far enough along in this signed tag pulling stuff for you to have thoughts
about best practices for the tag contents. For example if you look at
my recent 18d3e0d75079 is there anything you'd rather have different
(although of course that was a very boring tag with no controversial
contents and no conflicts)? Any naming conventions for tags? Anything
else you want an excuse to pontificate about?
