Using plugins like "Members" or "Capability Manager", I don't see any such manage_tags capability. Shouldn't there be one like there is manage_categories?

EDIT: I think I figured it out. manage_terms is for all taxonomies. There isn't one specifically for tags, but I could create one if I so desire. This could allow me to set up a role that can edit only categories, but not tags, and vice versa.

NOTE: I got rated down. If you rate me down, please state why. Thanks.

Whoever rated me down, why? It doesn't help to get rated down without an explanation. – trusktr Jun 29 '11 at 7:36

You need to check out codex page regarding roles and caps to see the list of default capabilites that exist, you can always create your own custom capabilites
