Environment based tag file for project
« on: June 19, 2010, 01:48:11 pm »
I have several python VirtualEnvs built around Pinax.  I'd like to be able to take one of the virtual envs, and then insert the tagging of that that VirtualEnv into (potentially) multiple projects.

Right now tagging is either Global or "files in the project".  What I'm proposing is a layer between those two.

Global (Base Python Install + the tagdoc file)
Project Base  (Add these Tag files, but the files aren't part of the workspace)
Project (These files are part of the workspace)

This allows me to do Find In Files that are more sane and would even allow you to have an additional Find In Files option (All Tagged files) if I really wanted to broaden the scope.  I currently do this with a Find In Files specifying the root of the VirtualEnv.

This would also allow me to have multiple versions of Django tagged, and depending on the project I am editing, get the right information.

This would also help with VC6/VS2008/VS2010 since I could have different things tagged based on the version of the libraries and compiler.

It seems a simple extension to tagging to implement, hope you guys can pull it off.
