How do I find tags via the API?

We tag resolved tickets with the version number of their release. Using the API and the Ruby gem, I'd like to generate a poor man's release notes from the tagged tickets. The problem is that I don't know all of the release tags to search for. If I could get a list of all the tags, I could find them by Regexp, but I don't see a way to do this short of fetching all the tickets (which is clearly not ideal). :)

Am I missing a way to do this? Or should I be asking for that list to be available?

    Interesting. No, we don't have a tag API, but I can probably whip one up.

    Not to nag, just curious: any progress on this?

    peeja -- not yet, we've been pretty busy, but I'll see if we can't squeeze it into development mid next week once we have the launch smoothed out.

    Awesome, thanks. Best of luck and an early congratulations on Tender! It's pretty darn sweet.

    Oh man, I forgot to update this! I fail at tickets, especially over the holidays.


    I've got a new ruby client lib in the works that'll support this. If you have issues, I can add this to the current lib really quick though.

    @rick: Cool! If you could add that to the current lib, that would be really helpful.
