Caveat though, that field is really meant as a tags field and not free
from text. Everything you enter there ends up in a tags list and
is suggested for further entries, tags are comma separated. I'd not use
that for private comments. The tags system helps though to classify bugs
according to a personal schema.

Btw, can the tags list be edited somehow? Unfortunately it is also not
possible to set tags in a mass change, in all bugs of a search result.
