I came across and had to do a bit of research to discover that it's a JavaScript framework, with most of its questions tagged . I tried to propose it as a synonym but discovered that there was a rep requirement within the affected tags. What's the right thing to do then?

There are about 100 questions in . I went through them all and retagged 3 or 4 that turned out to be about Linux file systems. The rest are unambiguously about the JS library. There are few enough that one could retag them all manually, and I started to do so, but then thought that such mass editing might be Frowned Upon, given that even suggesting it is something I'm apparently not trusted to without being knowledgeable enough to answer questions about the stuff.

Please advise. Should I undo my retagging edits?

Looks like a good idea to me. If you ignore questions with , , and , there are 28 questions remaining, two of which:

I was unsure about, but @Henning Makholm has already updated them, Thanks! -- see the comments below.

  • The first one I honestly missed. The latter contains javascript code and no obvious indications of another meaning for ext. But I probably shouldn't have called that one "unambiguous" :-) Aug 30, 2011 at 20:21
  • Hehe. No worries! I stared at the 'code' in both. I couldn't decipher the first question's code. The second looks like Javascript (to a guy who doesn't use Javascript), but I think the OP intended the tag to mean extension? (as in add-on for Firefox?) But I am really unsure, so I left them both alone.
