I've been giving it a bit of extra thought. Now I don't think that
everything under devel:: should apply to use::developing. libfoo-dev is
a development library, it's a tool used by my code but but it's not a
tool that helps to write my code.
In that sense, use::developing should go for example to:
devel::bugtracker, devel::buildtools, devel::code-generator,
devel::compiler, devel::debugger, devel::editor, devel::ide,
but not to, for example:
devel::debian, devel::doc, devel::docsystem, devel::library,
devel::packaging, devel::rpc, devel::runtime.
Would this distinction stand? When I'm looking for development tools
I'm not looking for -dev libraries, and we could address that use case.
For what concerns incomplete tagging, we can fix that somehow: it's
trivial for me to write a script that adds the use::developing tags to
everything that's role::program and devel::* and not one of the 'not'
examples above; that wouldn't make big mistakes, give us a decent start
and we can refine from there like we refine everything else.
Does it make more sense like this?
