I agree with the thinking in "twig tag should be independent tag", and the accepted answer to it. However this is just 1 out of many of such tag-issues, which I've seen happening over and over the recent past. Some (?) examples:
What happened to all those questions that used to be tagged with modules (which is gone)? If you now have a question like "Assume I have some module (doesn't matter what the module is used for), with a .info file that looks like so and so, how come it doesn't show up within the admin UI to enable my module there?".
What about the various synonyms of i18n-l10n? I'm sure there used to be i18n, and also something like l10n-x (don't remember what X was). But please don't tell me that i18n is the same as l10n. Moreover, language and/or translation are, IMO, not similar examples of what you can read in (eg) synonyms of i18n-l10n, which includes this:
If you know of common, alternate spellings or phrasings for this tag, add them here so we can automatically correct them in the future. For example, suggest “bike” as a synonym for bicycle, or “sock” for socks.
With the current synonyms of i18n-l10n, the previous phrase should look like this also:
For example, suggest “bike” as a synonym for sock, or “bicycle” for socks.
More of the same: what about the various synonyms of users? True, user is a valid one (that's like the sock and socks). But what about any of these (which sound to me like the “bicycle” and "socks" ...):
And then there are all those tags that simply got removed from all questions using them (sometimes there were hundreds of such questions). For those there is even no trace left via something that is currently considered a synonym. I wonder if there is any type of trace, or explanation about why all those tags "had to go".
- How can the Drupal.SE community get more involved in deciding about these kinds of tag maintenance activities before these activities are performed?
- Are there any alternatives available for those users who like building lists of questions about specific topics, and for which only using "a" specific tag produces way too long lists of questions?
