Can i add a tag to gem?

Yes, anyone logged in may add tags. Thoughtfully though, as there is no way to remove them yet.

Who are the owners of a gem?

RubyGems.org determines the primary owners of a gem. If a user log's in with the same email (and verifies it), he will automatically be assigned as owner of his gems. Please mail us if this is not so.
Additionally, if the gem is hosted on github, persons with commit right to the repository will also be considered owner.
