Just saw a question posted with the tag. How valuable is this tag, really? The tag wiki makes it sound like all questions in the tag should relate to "quality assurance."

If the question has value and relates to a real programming problem, does it really matter if it's a problem that someone ran into when doing quality assurance testing? Can we burninate this one?

Are you saying that there aren't specific programming problems that might come up when creating a quality assurance system? – Lance Roberts Dec 17 '12 at 17:55
Not at all, I'm saying that it generally doesn't matter if the problem was discovered in a "qa" context or not. Take the question I linked to. It looks like a decent question, and the qa tag doesn't add any value to it (it has since been removed). – Andrew Whitaker Dec 17 '12 at 17:57
@LanceRoberts No, he's saying that the tag wiki doesn't indicate that it means "this question is related to development of a QA system" and that's not how it's being used. – Servy Dec 17 '12 at 18:03
