Summary: Change tags in RC feed
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: IRC

Currently the IRC RC feed does not include any information about change tags.

Given that

* change tags can be (and are) applied after the change is made
* feed lines are already too long sometimes
* preserving backwards compatibility with existing clients is important

the act of tagging would need to be sent to the feed as a separate line, in
contrast to Recent Changes where tags are displayed alongside changes.

All feed clients that I am aware of apply line-based pattern matching and
ignore unrecognized lines, so this should not break anything.

See related bug 18080, which requests that the AbuseFilter extension includes
details of filter hits. Since change tags are a core feature, it would be
cleaner to include this in core, and not have to re-implement it for any other
extensions that start using change tags.
