Well, that's a poor title, I agree...

I've just noticed that a simple retag of a question does show up as with a "retagged" note:

alt text

I'm quite sure that has been displayed as a general "edited" before.

Am I right, and is this a nice enhancement?

(If so, thanks to Mr. Administrator!)

This is a side-effect of a bug I fixed the other day. If you had enough reputation to retag a question but not enough to edit any question and you tried to retag, you would get a 500 Internal Server Error because of a python bug. If you had enough rep to edit a question, the retagging stuff would fail but it would still work and show up as an edit. This has been fixed and retags will show up as such.

FWIW, I've just now retagged several questions from "sa-9" to "asa-9" (though I'm still waiting for a standard tag set...), and those changes are displayed as "edited", not "retagged".

Python re-bugged?

My guess is that the system checks to see if you have enough rep to edit the question and if so, it marks the change as an edit. If you don't but you do have enough rep to retag, then it marks the change as a retag.

So that's the first situation when one can have too much reputation points...

If I just could offer some bounties:)
