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

Restricted/moderator tags like [faq] are stripped when migrating to meta, but it seems to be too aggressive.

In the question Setting up a FAQ for the C++ tag, there was originally a [c++-faq] tag. When it is migrated to here, however, the tag becomes [c++-] (see revision 1). Is it intended?

+1 This could go either way. I'm very interested to hear Jeff's answer. – Jon Seigel Oct 27 '10 at 1:34
Also, I'm curious if a tag like [faq-xyz] would be modified. – Jon Seigel Oct 27 '10 at 1:48
