Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

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. – Henrik Andersson 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. – Henrik Andersson 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? – Henrik Andersson 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
