In order to ensure all Microsoft Project-related tags are consistently named, please could the following changes be made:

This change is being requested to try and inroduce a degree of consistency amongst tags relating to Microsoft Project. Although there is no formally defined hierarchy or relationships between tags, the suggested naming convention ensures that users can follow the logic of relationships like:

ms-project...ms-project-server...ms-project-server-2007

and so on

If you have any arguments for these changes you should put them in your post to add force to the request. –  N.N. Feb 22 '12 at 16:53

@N.N. Consistent naming is good? –  Michael Mrozek Feb 22 '12 at 16:59
    
@MichaelMrozek Indeed, I just meant that it would be good to state arguments explicitly in the post. –  N.N. Feb 22 '12 at 17:00
    
Do all of the tags really need "ms" in front? This looks a lot like "ms-excel", which I think is rather pointless. –  Cody Gray Feb 22 '12 at 18:27

Removing the ms prefix makes the ms-project tag problematic. The goal of this change was to try and ensure we have a consistent set of tags relating to Microsoft Project, stemming from a base "ms-project" tag. I'm open to other suggestions about what the base tag should be, but "project" on it's own is probably too general. –  Jon Iles Feb 22 '12 at 18:29

@CodyGray: I'm all for explicit tags. F.e. word can have multiple meanings in programming, also access. Microsoft names it's stuff just too ambiguous to let them stand alone. –  Time Traveling Bobby Feb 24 '12 at 11:26

We should probably make things like a synonym of , that way if someone tries to use the project-server tag they are prompted to use the correct one instead.
