contact.tag_list is always splitted into single chars #81

if I do a:
contact.tag_list = ['newtag1','newtag2']
in redmine it got splitted into single chars.

the redmin log shows following during update:
Processing by ContactsController#update as JSON
Parameters: {"contact"=>{"tag_list"=>"n,e,w,t,a,g,1,n,e,w,t,a,g,2"}, "key"=>"", "id"=>"1"}
Current user: user
Rendered text template (0.0ms)

if I do a separate log statement showing Contact._changes:'Changes: %s', pformat(contact._changes))
INFO: Changes: {'tag_list': 'newtag1,newtag2'}
So it seems that it is handled either directly on set or multiple times on save()

If you wrap tag_list in another list, following Error occurs:
python_redmine-1.0.2-py2.7.egg/redmine/", line 912, in translate_params
params['tag_list'] = ','.join(params['tag_list'])
TypeError: sequence item 0: expected string, list found

So if params['tag_list'] is a list of strings it should join the strings
if params['tag_list'] is a string it should do nothing

The problem is that it seems that translate_params get tag_list as a string and not as list
','.join('string') will be splitted into 's,t,r,i,n,g'

Maybe a type check on each param would solve that clearly and may also make the writting of code using python-redmine more flexible.

Thanks for the fix, unfortunately there's a little bit more to be done to fix this completely. Also you can't do this: raise ResourceAttrError('Wrong type to update tag_list provided') because ResourceAttrError doesn't expect any arguments.

I'll add the remaining code which will fix this completely tomorrow. Thanks for the report and the fix.
