IDE tags are often used as meta-tags, as additional information telling people what IDE the asker uses. It goes without saying, meta-tags are a Bad Thing™. Now, these tags are not valid candidates for burnination, because the FAQ clearly states that on-topic includes
- a specific programming problem
- a software algorithm
- software tools commonly used by programmers
- practical, answerable problems that are unique to the programming profession
So they just need to be cleaned up. The worst offender, as I see it, is Android plus Eclipse, and there's also non-Android Java questions. Those are the combinations I'm starting with. The questions that use the IDE as a meta-tag should have that tag removed.
Does Eclipse need to build the project to do "Java Search" -- Good use of both tags, both can stay.
Google Maps works, but then displays gey tiles when drawing geopoints -- Eclipse tag should be removed, has nothing to do with the question.
