Tag Central could greatly improve many things but having had some
discussions on the topic on IRC I see it's a very delicate topic. On top
of that there is the redaction process going on.
For now I have started some work in different area just to familiarize
myself with the code but this "server-side validation" or Tag Central
stuff - that's definitely something I would be interested in. When I am
done with some of the UI work, I would love to get back to it, resume
the discussion, maybe work on a prototype.
If you have any ideas on how to approach it or need help with some
ongoing work around this topic, feel free to contact me.
