Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In the description for the tag, it says to not use it and instead use for low-level native PC instructions in order to distinguish from .NET bytecode questions.

However, when I retag a question from to , it switches back to . Am I missing something here?

I suppose I should just not bother with retagging asm, then? I understand tags can have synonyms, but if that's the case I don't get why/how the master tag says that it's not to be used. – Mahmoud Al-Qudsi May 6 '12 at 3:38
AFAIK, all the .NET stuff has been weeded out of the assembly tag. So now we just need a moderator to merge assembly-language into assembly. – Mysticial May 6 '12 at 3:40
And to get rid of the "don't use" description. – Mahmoud Al-Qudsi May 6 '12 at 3:44

That notice has now been removed from the tag wiki.
