The tag wiki summary for the [numpy] tag appears to be out of sync with what appears on the dynamic content on the https://stackoverflow.com/tags page. The wiki summary currently says "this tag has no wiki summary ...", but I'm pretty sure there should be content there

Is this a result of an edit being in the queue, or is this a genuine problem?

No, this is .

Actually, /tags page is looking for excerpt, while /tag/tagname is looking for wiki summary.

If you take a look at the other tags, for example , you'll see that in /tags it's

a high level, general-purpose object-oriented programming language created by Microsoft.

in /questions/tagged/c#, it's different, too

C# is a multi-paradigm, managed, object-oriented programming language created by Microsoft in conjunction with the .NET platform. C# is also used with non-Microsoft implementations (most notably, Mono). Versions 1.0/1.2 and 2.0 of C# were submitted and approved as both ECMA and ISO/IEC standards. ...

Take a look here and I think you'll get what am I talking about


I am currently quite confused about tag wikis, tag wiki excerpts, tag summaries, and how they are supposed to work. Recently, changes have been silently introduced (for the worse, IMHO). See this question.

The wiki summary does say "this tag has no wiki summary ..." as the OP points out. I am pretty sure this wasn't the case a couple of weeks ago.
