VM instance labels are really tags
In the VM instances page, there is an option to edit instances labels. Initially I was confused as to the difference between labels and tags. However, it seems they are the same thing, just different terminology which is super confusing.
When you add a tag, it adds to labels. When you delete a label, it deletes the tag.
I'd recommend renaming labels to tags in the web interface.
Thanks, we’ll see if we can make things clearer.

Has this changed now so labels are different to tags?
These do not show up as tags in ansible dynamic inventory
Tags are a single word ("webserver"), whereas labels are key value pairs (type=webserver) - so how can this happen?
