There is the function `org-global-tags-completion-table' which will  
construct this list for the agenda files or for any other list of  
files you are giving it.  For each of these files it will at the tags  
defined in #+TAGS: lines as well as any other tags being used in that  
file.

Thanks for the reply. However, I'm afraid that I'm not (yet) a lisp
programmer. What would the definition of such a function look like?
This function seems to be undocumented.

The function is there, and it is documented.  But I think they key  
question is:  what you you want to do with the list of tags.  If you  
tell us, maybe you can get an answer!

I just want to keep tag names consistent across files and I want to know what tags are in use in all files as I add a tag. However, it's too tedious to manually maintain org-tag-alist because I use a large and arbitrary number of tags at any given time.

It would also be great if there was a way to list all tags in global use. (I'm thinking something like a tag cloud here.)

BTW, where is the documentation? I'm using orgmode 7.03, perhaps it's not documented there?

Have you tried the following setting?

(setq org-complete-tags-always-offer-all-agenda-tags t)

> BTW, where is the documentation? I'm using orgmode 7.03, perhaps it's
> not documented there?

C-h f org-global-tags-completion-table.

Best,
Matt

C-h v org-complete-tags-always-offer-all-agenda-tags says:

It seems there are a lot more references to remember, but I'm not sure which

Thanks. That did the trick. I found that I also had to disable 
org-use-fast-tag-selection. For some reason, with that set to t or
auto, I couldn't select from the global tag list.

Is there a way to auto-magically construct the global tag list (org-tag-alist)?
That is, tags would get added to the global list as you add them.

Alternatively, is there a way to construct the global list of all tags
in use (in the agenda files or given set of files)?
