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 are two tags:

There's no wiki for either, yet.

Superficially, it is trivial to merge the two - I set off to do so. Then I found that there seems to be a product, library or feature called 'Topdown' (eg this question or this question) associated with OpenGL and 3D graphics, but the majority of the questions seem to be about 'top-down' vs 'bottom-up' approaches to design.

What should be done about this confusing situation?

  • Establish whether the Topdown associated with OpenGL is real or not (a quick Google search is not conclusive).
  • Create Wiki entries for both.
  • Designate the tag for general use related to 'top-down' vs 'bottom-up' vs 'inside-out' design issues.
  • Designate the for the OpenGL library if it exits.
  • Clean up the existing questions, retagging many of the ones in .

Did I miss anything?

Do you know about a 'Topdown' library?

I'd prefer and for clarification, assuming, of course, the library exists.

How about topdown-opengl & top-down-opengl as aliases?

The opengl extension in auto-complete should be a clue as to correct use of the tag on future posts (unless it gets purged in the low-usage cleanup)

topdown-opengl makes sense; did you mean 'top-down-design' for the other? – Jonathan Leffler Apr 25 '11 at 3:47
Nope, I was thinking that if top-down and topdown are already in use, it makes sense to cater for both spellings as aliases. – Phil Lello Apr 25 '11 at 3:50
