+** Usertags
+See <http://wiki.debian.org/bugs.debian.org/usertags>
+"Usertags" are very similar to tags: a set of labels that can be added
+to a bug.  There are two differences between normal tags and user
+1) Anyone can define any valid usertag they like.  In contrast, only a
+limited, predefined set of normal tags are available (see above).
+2) A usertag is associated with a specific email address.
+You set usertags in the same way as tags, by talking to the control
+server.  One difference is that you can also specify the associated
+email address.  If you don't explicitly specify an address, then it
+will use the one from which you send the control message. The address
+must have the form of an email address (with an "@" sign and least 4
+characters after the "@").
+*** Setting usertags
+a) In a control message:
+user address@hidden
+usertags 1234 any-tag-you-like
+This will add a usertag "any-tag-you-like" to bug 1234.  The tag will
+be associated with the address "address@hidden".  If you omit
+the first line, the tag will be associated with your email address.
+The syntax of the usertags command is the same as that of tags (eg wrt
+the optional [=+-] argument).
+b) In an initial submission, in the pseudo-header:
+User: address@hidden
+Usertags: a-new-tag
+Again, the "User" is optional.
+*** Searching by usertags
+The search interface is not as advanced as for normal tags.  You need
+to construct the relevant url yourself rather than just typing in a
+search box.  The only piece you really need to add is the "users"
+portion, the rest has the same syntax as normal.
+**** To find all bugs usertagged by a given email address:
+(Supposedly, the "users" field can be a comma-separated list of more
+than one email address, but it does not seem to work for me.)
+**** To find bugs tagged with a specific usertag:
+This works just like a normal tags search, but with the addition of a
+"users" field.  Eg:
 *** To merge bugs:
 Eg when bad replies create a bunch of new bugs for the same report.
 Bugs must all be in the same state (e.g. same package(s) and severity
