I have noticed that the the patterns tag is full of irrelevant and/or ambiguous questions. At least, the following meanings of "pattern" revealed:
- patterns of refactoring
- match, regex, and pattern-matching (these three are yet another problem)
- or sometimes they just mean "best practices how to accomplish a certain task" (sample)
My observation is that many of the questions already tagged with the proper tags, but also incorrectly tagged patterns.
I'm aware about how to cleanup tags, but I'm curious about whether it makes any sense retagging more than 800 questions.
Is there any relevant discussion here on Meta?
Does it make any sense re-tagging all questions and removing the tag?
