Tagging in Redmine
I Want To Implement the tagging functionality in redmine.In One of the posts somebody has mentioned that Tagging can be done by creating a custom field .I want to Implement this tagging functionality in News,Documents,Forums,Wkis etc.If this is the case How can I use the custom fields to implement tagging functionality.
Is there any separate plugin to Implement the tagging functionality.I tried with acts_as_taggable plugin.The Problem is that I could not able to Install the plugin and also in somewhere it has mentioned that Acts_as_taggable does not work with Rails 2.0.I am runing Redmine 8.0 and it uses Rails 2.0.So Please Guide me in this issue
How can I Implement This Tagging Functionality in Redmine

A Tagging system would be a great feature for redmine.
Two tagging versions could be possible:
The user gets a textfield and enters tags (separated by space - linked words are encapsulated in quotes - eg. "tag this string" term2 term3 "term nr 4")
Central tagging handling: The system admin generates a list of tags (similar to the 'user defined fields' - taggroups can be assinged to different pageareas )
The user then gets the opportunity to check a variable number of tags (within an issue or a project or [most imortant] while booking time)
While beeing a good typo3 and JS programmer, my Ruby on Rails skills are pathetic. Therefore I can just offer my help for testing and conceptualization!

Personally tagging would be good for the wiki as pages don't always fit into a neat category so being able to add tags is one step better than just relying on the good search facilities in Redmine.

I would love to see tagging support added to redmine by default as well. This plugin is available and looks like a good start, although I was unable to install it in our production environment,
Unfortunately that plugin only seems to tag on issues (not documents, files, wiki pages, etc). It seems that the author of this plugin is actively working on it, perhaps he could be convinced to add tagging to the redmine codebase proper.

I'd love to see tagging in Redmine's near future, too!
May I add a requirement here: In my Use Case some tags should be protected from being deleted by users with insufficient rights. It could be solved with something like:
A tag added to an issue by an administrator may not be deleted by a non-admin.
