Description

Hi there,
first of all, thank you guys for your excellent work.

Second,
I have an addition to your plugin.

We use your plugin to keep the team up to date with developments regarding our projects and to keep the mail box clean of any FYI stuff.

We started to use trac and your plugin not that long ago so we had to evaluate many plugins.
By now the users are beginning to use their blogs to drop ideas, interesting things and other issues.
The number of items stored in the database ise growing steadily and really fast.
The need for some sort of order is emerging.

Normally you could sort or group blogs by users or more important by their tags or categories.
In combination with a RSS-Abonnement the categories could have been a real advancement.
Unfortunatly the authors use their own category tags, thereby simply ignoring existing ones and creating new ones every day. Sometimes they differ simply by a sort of upper or lower and the singular or plural spelling.
As result of this situation it is not possible to use RSS feeds ( by category abo ) to keep track of issues which might be interesting to you, because you cannot depend on an author placing his post under the right category.

I thought therefor of a sort of multiselect ( multiple tags ) field option similar to the restrict owner option for the owner field in trac tickets.
You would simply enter the allowed keywords in the admin-menu of trac out of which the multiselect menu would present the options.

If you guys could implement such a thing it would be great.

That's also my experience. You end up in quite unorganized category chaos. It's a bit annoying when you tell the people again and again the right set of category names and the constantly forget or ignore them. ;(

I second this. Actually this is Severity=major to me. :)
