LiveJournal Tag support

LiveJournal now supports tags. So should Drivel! Hooray for new features, eh?

First shot at LJ tags support
Adds basic LJ tag support (tags for new posts, can load and tag old posts). The
UI for it is ugly...not sure where to put the entry box for tags. Nothing yet
for tag management.
Sweet! The back-end looks fine, but you're right, the UI doesn't really fit.
I setup a mailing list (email@example.com) and will be making a post today
or tomorrow regarding future plans for Drivel--I have a lot of ideas, and would
love to have some other people critique them and/or offer their own. The
editing UI is one of the things I'd love to overhaul, so let's hold off
commiting this for now until we know what direction the UI is going in.
Yeah, I knew you were planning on a big UI change, so I didn't worry about it
too much in that patch.
I'm on the list already. Fire at will!

Update tags patch to current drivel-2-0 branch
This obseletes the other patch, but I appear to be unable to obsolete it myself
Would it be possible to add this feature to the MoveableType-mode also? BloGTK supports tags with MT-like blogging systems (in my case: Serendipity), so there must be some provision for it in the XMLRPC used by this system.

Sweet, this patch works nicely on my AMD64 system. The only thing it's missing is the ability to fetch existing tags for autocompletion, same as LJ has in its web interface.
Too bad Drivel seems to be dead; this patch could go in as-is. Oh well, thanks anyway. I'm using the patch locally at least. :)
I see a problem with this patch.
+ if (!tags)
+ music = g_strdup ("");
That 'music' should be 'tags'.
I have a patch to add tag support for MT/WP and will be filling a bug tomorrow with it. We should try to merge the blog-agnostic code. If you're still interested in drivel, that is.
This is Debian bug 465805
(BTW, drivel isn't dead, it's just been v.quiet.)
I'll take a look at this for 2.1.

update the patch for 2.0.4 branch
Just updating the patch for the 2.0.4 branch with a few offsets. Currently being tested.
Updated the patch due to changes in #538960 - and it works OK. Tested in LJ.
This problem has been fixed in our software repository. The fix will go into the next software release. Thank you for your bug report.
Nice! I'm very glad to know that Drivel development hasn't died.
Is it possible to add support for fetching existing tags from LJ so that they can be selected with just a click? Rather than having to first login to LJ in the browser to remember "what are my available tags."
The patch in this bug just seems to add another entry field for tags; it'd be nice if users could add their existing tags as well as create new ones.
Thanks again for reviving Drivel!
This bug is now closed and I don't think the "available tags" functionality is going to fit into 2.0.4, too many other changes. In particular, this patch already caused problems with updating the translations because it added a new translatable string. Adding the functionality to search for tags has the potential to require more translatable strings, so it's best to push that to 2.1 or later.
Please file a new bug detailing this request - maybe it can be done for 2.1.x
