There seem to be plenty of questions related to namespaces. Would it be helpful to add a tag?

  • Wouldn't object to this. Namespaces come up in contexts outside of PHP directly related to Drupal concepts: module names, plugin IDs, etc. We need to identify some good questions that would be improved (findability wise) by adding this tag. – mpdonadio Jan 23 '19 at 22:42
  • @mpdonadio Here is maybe an example. At the moment, it's only tagged 7. I think it would be helpful for some of the questions in the search list to have a tag related to their specific question, rather than just the Drupal version. – mbomb007 Jan 23 '19 at 23:04

    Namespaces is a too vague concept. In fact, between the questions listed from that search link, two are about XML namespaces, another one isn't even about namespaces (since they cannot be called), a fourth one is not about namespaces. Even considering just PHP namespaces, that is not a Drupal-only concept. – kiamlaluno Jan 24 '19 at 7:41
  • I'm inclined to agree with @kiamlaluno that namespaces might be a bit too broad (given that that term crops up in various different technologies). I'd be happy with php-namespaces or something, though, because they're intrinsic to D8 IMO – Clive Jan 25 '19 at 20:15
  • Here's a good example: drupal.stackexchange.com/questions/124976/… – Clive Jan 25 '19 at 20:16
  • I am fine with @Clive suggestion, as long as questions using php-namespaces just because are PHP questions or questions about other namespace types are edited to remove the tag. – kiamlaluno Jan 25 '19 at 20:32
  • The tag usage guidelines can be written to clarify the intended use. – mbomb007 Jan 25 '19 at 22:19
  • The tag guidelines don't prevent users from using the tag when it's not appropriate. Other users need to actively remove the tag when not appropriate. – kiamlaluno Jan 26 '19 at 12:00
