has a tag wiki describing the iCal file format. The tag is mostly used on android questions (as an acronym of Ice Cream Sandwich).

What's the best thing to do with this?

Can I just change the tag wiki to describe Ice Cream Sandwich? Should I also untag the actual iCal questions and leave them tagged ?

EDIT: The other option suggested in the comments is to change the tag on all the android questions. This has now been done by AakashM. Thanks!

Are you sure? It could be that people have been applying the wrong tag and that a new ice-cream-sandwich tag is needed instead. – ChrisF Mar 8 '12 at 10:08
I've been busy on ics and I think there are no longer any ice-cream-sandwich-related questions on it, but I'm sure to have missed some – AakashM Mar 8 '12 at 11:06
ICS? I think that tag is ambiguous and needs to be renamed to reflect its relation to iCal. – iglvzx Mar 8 '12 at 17:32
I agree with @ChrisF. The ICS tag should be co-opted for iCal. ice-cream-sandwich can be used for Android's 4.0 platform (and should probably be synonymized with android-4.0. – Robert Harvey Mar 9 '12 at 0:46
I looked at the link to Ice Cream Sandwich that you provided, and nowhere did I see that the official abbreviation for Ice Cream Sandwich is ICM. Just because you use that acronym as an abbreviation does not provide sufficient cause to go changing tag wikis and coopting a tag reasonably used for iCal or Internet Connection Sharing. – Cody Gray Mar 9 '12 at 2:24
@CodyGray I don't use that acronym myself, but it was apparent that many other people were. I clicked on the tag, and noticed all the questions were about android, and the wiki was about ical. It's no longer a problem since AakashM has been through and retagged the android questions to ice-cream-sandwich, so I'll vote to close my question. – Colin Pickard Mar 9 '12 at 13:53
I've gone through and retagged the questions incorrectly tagged [ics] to [ice-cream-sandwich] (or at least, all those in the [android] tag as well). there's probably a few where people didn't tag with android. – TZHX Sep 25 '12 at 11:42

The best way of addressing this is to retag all the android questions . This was recommended by ChrisF and Robert Harvey in the comments and implemented by AakashM - thanks everyone.
