I propose a merge of the two tags and .

Haystack is a Django app as is so there is little need for having two tags. The description of "haystack" could be merged into the tag.

I suggest that we keep the prefix django- as we do with

To avoid confusion with double tagging much like this question here

I will try and revive this question as it's still a problem where I have to retag up to 10 questions each week. –  limelights Jul 9 '13 at 20:20

I have retagged all Django Haystack questions that were tagged with , to .

There were 204 questions tagged , and there are now 23 remaining - all relating to generic needle in a haystack problems (mostly in PHP).

I have edited the tag wiki for to mean the generic haystack problem:

A haystack is a generic term for a set of results to search. For Django Haystack-related questions, use instead.

But that's really not helpful. We shouldn't have two haystack related tags just as we don't have two [south] tags. –  limelights May 3 '13 at 10:22
@limelights I don't understand why this isn't helpful... there will be only 1 Django Haystack tag. I'm about half way through this. –  Danny Beckett May 3 '13 at 10:23
It won't keep people from still doing the tagging with Haystack since the module itself is called Haystack. People are seldom referring to the "haystack in a needle" type scenario or perhaps I'm wrong? –  limelights May 3 '13 at 10:24
If people use the wrong tag, that can't be helped. Hopefully the tag wiki edit I made will reduce this though. There are only 23 non-Django questions in the [haystack] tag - if there's consensus to burninate it, I say "go for it"! –  Danny Beckett May 3 '13 at 10:45
