Implement UI to easily tag bugs from the bug report directly (and get rid of the current form in the footer)

Once bug 616185 is implemented (Bug.set_tags), we (= pyrzak ;)) will be able to implement the new UI to tag bugs from the bug report directly. The idea is to use something similar to the current keyword autocompletion system, i.e. if you start typing a tag name which you already typed in the past, then suggest it in a drop-down menu, else let the user type a new one.

My proposal would be to display this tag field near the keyword or whiteboard field, and to display it as read-only by default, as we do for the dependency fields. My idea behind this is to later color tags, so that all tags having the same name would have the same color. The algorithm about how to color them can be discussed later. Did I say I like how Pidgin colors nicks in IRC channels? :).

To be clear: this bug is about the ability to tag a single bug from show_bug.cgi. The ability to tag several bugs at once from a buglist is a separate bug, see bug 95722.

Review of attachment 615464 [details] [diff] [review]:

The patch looks good and it works as expected, however, I think it would better if instead of displaying the tags in the text field, we could do like Depends on/blocks, list them inline as links which would point to a bug list for all bugs that contain that tag:

Tags: Foo Bar Baz (edit)

That would improve the usability for the tags within show bug page.

The improvement can be done in a separated bug.

This would be a good idea for another bug. Feel free to report it if there isn't one already. Thanks for the review! :)

How do I remove tags?

> How do I remove tags?

Once a tag is no longer used by any bug, it's totally removed from the DB.
