Tag

Short Description

A Tag is an alphanumeric string that is used to identify scopes^scope (so called 'scopetags'), group terms (so called 'grouptags'), or identify a specific version of a terminology (so called 'versiontags') from within a specific scope.

Scopetags identify a scope (from within a given scope), and hence can be used (within that given scope) to disambiguate terms. For example, #essif-lab:term is an identifier for the concept that within the scope identified by the scopetag essif-lab is referred to by the term 'term'. Scopetags typically satisfy the regex #[a-z0-9_-]+ and is often preceded by the # character to designate that it is a tag.

Grouptags may be used within a scope to tag various sorts or [knowledge artifacts such as terms, concepts and the like. One can then say that this tag represents the group of artifacts that are associated with that tag. This may be used for different purposes. One example is to tag every term that is part of a pattern with a pattern-specific tag. Grouptags typically satisfy the regex #[a-z0-9_-]+ and is often preceded by the # character to designate that it is a tag.

Versiontags are used to identify a specific version of the terminology of the scope within which the versiontag lives. It may have various forms, and would typically be chosen such that it comes in handy with the tools that the terms community has decided to use to curate that scope.
