Issuing this command

curl -X PUT -d @lhtest -H 'X-LighthouseToken: [my token]' -H 'Content-Type: application/xml' http://bluenotion.lighthouseapp.com/projects/85349/tickets/139.xml

with this lhtest file

<ticket><body>I ain't clearin' no tags</body></ticket>

results in this ticket update:

→ Tag cleared.

I ain't clearin' no tags

Is this a bug in the lighthouse API? Or am I missing something?

    Evan -

    I've added you to an existing development ticket for this bug. There is some good news regarding this bug: tags in the web UI (and the top-level record for the ticket) still contain the tags, and subsequent UI updates will include those tags until they're changed. Even subsequent API updates should not actually destroy tags until they're overridden.

    Internally, what's happening is the latest "version" record for this ticket is not getting the tags value set on it, so the "diffs" between versions show that tags were removed even though they remain on the ticket.

    To summarize: The "tags cleared" message is mostly a display error, and subsequent updates should still have the tags in place in the UI.

    We'll update this discussion when we have more information to share on the fix.

    Thank you for the prompt reply! I figured it was a display issue, but thought I'd mention it.
