How to make an edit that only changes the tag list by adding a tag that does not exist?

+9
−0

I tried to add a tag to an existing post by editing it and it failed because there was no actual post edit:

No changes were saved did not edit the post

After further tests, I realized that this happens only if the added tag(s) do not already exist (probably the validation sees no difference because the non yet existent tags are ignored).

After slightly editing the post, the edit could be submitted, but the issue still remains.

How to make an edit that only changes the tag list (nothing in the post body)?

While reviewing older bugs we discovered that this problem no longer exists. I'm sorry we didn't catch this at the time; I don't know if someone fixed it but we failed to update here, or if it was fixed as a side-effect of some other change, but I just tested this out in this suggested edit and it seems to be working now.
