We're trying to push around 237 pages to MDN, using the PUT API [1], for WebExtensions API reference documentation, and they need to be tagged correctly for the sidebar to work.

But it seems like the tags aren't getting set correctly. Using a very slightly modified version of the example[2], [3], the page is published fine, and the title is set, but the tags are not what I expected [4].

It also doesn't seem to suppress the TOC, which I thought '"show_toc": 0' would do for me.

I asked in dev-mdc and Jean-Yves told me that this has never worked.

I'd much rather not have to fix up all 237 pages manually.

I tested this locally. It appears that the API doesn't take a list of tag strings, but a single string with a comma separated list of tags.

E.g., change ["test", "me"] in the JSON to "test me" or "test, me".

Oh, sorry, I did not realise the connection earlier.

I do this and related things in
https://github.com/anaran/webidl2mdn/blob/master/webidl2mdn-jetpack/data/webidl2skeleton.js#L202

I am still looking for the right functionality of my webidl2 to MDN skeleton generator.
