      Description

      The tags file in core seems to annoy many developers, so it might be time to delete it.

            OK, I did this:

            1) I deleted the tags file from HEAD, 1.9 and 1.8 (all currently developed versions)

            2) I added a tags.txt file which includes directions for creating the tags file or downloading it.

            3) I added "maketags" to the moodle-cvsupdate script on download.moodle.org.

            As a result:

            a) The latest tags file will be included in all the weekly packages
            b) The latest tags file is always available from the download server:

            http://download.moodle.org/tags (for head)
            http://download.moodle.org/stable19/tags (Moodle 1.9.x)
            http://download.moodle.org/stable18/tags (Moodle 1.8.x)

            (so you can easily get it with wget etc)
