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

The AMD tag is ambiguous and there seems to be a roughly even split in its application - between processor-specific questions and JavaScript library questions.

Only 127 tagged questions at time of writing, but this may grow as many popular JavaScript libraries are adopting AMD for interoperability.

Should we nip this one in the bud or is this just small fry? How should these questions be re-tagged?

I suppose AMD (the company) should retain the AMD tag since they own the trademark and the JavaScript AMD should be re-tagged as either JavaScript-AMD or AMD-JavaScript. – j08691 Sep 5 '12 at 21:19
@j08691 - I hadn't noticed it when I posted this, but the js-amd tag has some traction. – McDowell Sep 5 '12 at 22:54
