Description Julian Reschke 2010-10-31 13:30:53 UTC
The spec currently says:

"The tag keyword indicates that the tag that the referenced document represents applies to the current document."

I think this can be said to *any* link. This really needs more prose.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I'm happy to add more prose if you can suggest some, but as far as I can tell the description is complete and accurate. I strongly disagree that what the current description applies to any document, since few documents describe tags, for one.
Comment 2 Julian Reschke 2011-02-16 15:20:15 UTC
I confess that when I raised the bug I read the description incorrectly. It seems ok, although of course more meat wouldn't hurt.
