The tag is currently a synonym of the tag.

Schema API and Database API refer to two separate things in Drupal (they even have separate documentation in which they are specifically referred to as separate APIs).

Can we make a tag in it's own right, and perhaps rename it , to better reflect its purpose?

I'm more than happy to do the leg work to go through the questions currently tagged with , and re-tag appropriately.

I removed the synonym.

I agree that is a better tag. I remember was used in questions about the database API not related with the schema API, or questions about the database. Maybe, using would help avoiding the tag is misused.

The excerpt for the tag wiki should suggest the related tags.

  • Cool thanks for that. Shall I go through and re-tag the questions with schema-api where appropriate? There's only 100 or so, won't take long
