I've been looking at the mouse-over text for tag recently. Seems like some include the text of the tag while others don't. Is there a preferred wording?

EG:

"PHP is an open-source server-side scripting language..."

EG:

"The process of transparently storing data to improve response time."

Adding the name of the tag to the tag description doesn't really add any useful information. –  Asad Dec 13 '12 at 12:44

I prefer using a sentence, rather than a phrase, but this doesn't necessary mean to include the tag name. For example, the excerpt could be similar to the following one:

This tag is deprecated, and it will be removed. Don't use it.
