I have finally added the new system::* facet to the Debtags vocabulary:

This is the bit of vocabulary[1] that has been added:

  Facet: system
  Description: Class of system
   Class of system a package provides specific functionality for.
  Tag: system::cloud
  Description: Cloud
   Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than
   a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are
   provided to computers and other devices as a metered service over a
   network (typically the Internet).
  Tag: system::embedded
  Description: Embedded
   A computer system designed for specific control functions within a larger
  Tag: system::laptop
  Description: Laptop
   A personal computer for mobile use.
  Tag: system::mobile
  Description: Mobile device
   A small, hand-held computing device, typically having a display screen with
   touch input and/or a miniature keyboard.
  Tag: system::server
  Description: Server
   A physical computer (a computer hardware system) dedicated to
   running one or more such services (as a host),[1] to serve the needs
   of users of the other computers on the network. Depending on the
   computing service that it offers it could be a database server, file
   server, mail server, print server, web server, or other.
  Tag: system::virtual
  Description: Virtual
   A virtual computer hides the physical characteristics of a computing platform
   from users, instead showing another abstract computing platform.
  Tag: system::TODO
  Description: Need an extra tag
   The package can be categorised along this facet, but the right tag for it is
   Mark a package with this tag to signal the vocabulary maintainers of cases
   where the current tag set is lacking.

If you feel like something should be improved, please send patches
against the vocabulary file at:

Please note, if you are considering improving descriptions, that I would
prefer them to be Wikipedia extracts whenever possible, so please
improve them in Wikipedia first :)
