Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 noticed that many questions related to Scrum, Agile and other related tags are often closed on Stack Overflow as off-topic and migrated to programmers.stacexchange. Should we simply migrate whole these tags to programmers.stackexchange? I don't see too much point in having half of questions on SO and half of questions on programmers-SE. Also it would be nice to somehow notify users when asking new questions with these tags that they should ask it on programmers instead.

This is more about migrating whole tags with their questions so that tag "doesn't exist" in SO. If new Q/A sites are created for special topics why not migrate related content to that sites? – Ladislav Mrnka Mar 22 '11 at 11:46

I'm against wholesale migration of questions from one site to another (regardless of the sites involved). As I explained in my answer linked to by marcog each question must be judged on it's own merits.

A wholesale migration would migrate bad questions along with the good as well as inappropriate questions that were badly tagged. Closed questions could be ignored, so they're not an issue.

And there are mixed-tag questions as well. – Henk Holterman Mar 22 '11 at 14:28

No, it is not that easy, as a question may include how to write unit tests etc

If it is about "how to write unit tests" instead of "how to write unit test for this method" then it still suitable for programmers.SE. – Ladislav Mrnka Mar 22 '11 at 12:25

Similar and more general question was asked today. Responses provided in that question answer my question as well.
