Bug Description

Some of the documentation for search_tasks() parameters is incomplete. These are fairly oft-used routines so it'd be beneficial to have solid docs for them.

=== distribution_source_package.searchTasks() ===
tags - "Separated by whitespace" actually is a list

Here is a first draft at a patch. I've not yet tested it. There were a few fields I have no clue what they mean; these are marked FIXME.

On several fields where the user must specify one of a set of values, I listed the values to select from. Ideally these should show up in the Value column, but they don't and I wasn't able to spot how to slot them in there.

Note I've changed the description of tags from "Separated by whitespace." I think it might have accepted tags separated by whitespace some time in the past, but it doesn't now. Tags must be specified as a list. This is bug #569447.
