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

There is a and . Their tag wiki's are obviously an almost copy but the language of is general enough to encompass the second and it says it's intent is to be language-independent

I'm not sure about the usefulness of having these tags but I have no problem leaving them on, so I submit this to the audience:

Should these tags stay or go?

If the answer is stay then I think is too specific and needs to be merged and made a synonym.

I'd say keep them but make a synonym of , indeed. After all, we have whole list of exception tags to match.

These two tags are mostly used combined with Java (and a small percentage of C#), but the former wins as it has the larger number of questions.

I'd do it right now but lack the required 5 votes in the tag..
