I followed your steps and it worked well. However, after 4.) I do not
know, where the patch went. The result does not show on the
debtags-editor. Probably it has to be reviewed manually, but I don't
have a login at the review portal. 

Enrico: can you tell us, where the tag-data is ultimately stored
( seems not a Debian machine)? Which file does the
web-based editor work on (the results are instantly visible). Which file
does patched submitted through debtags-submit-patch go to?

I would like the updated tag data to be processed quickly so I can
remove x11::application and interface::x11 without a lot of new tagging
happening in between.

Best regards
