Does the generalist badge require 15 score total, or 15 score per tag?

There are a few other questions similar to this, but they are either outdated or not quite the question I'm asking.

Generalist Badge: Provided non-wiki answers of 15 total score in 20 of top 40 tags.

Question: What does 15 total score mean? Does it mean my answers cover 20 of the top 40, and must total 15 overall tags? Or does it mean I must each 15 points in each of those individual tags?

Note, I understand questions with multiple tags count as answering each tag.

20 is more than 15. That interpretation is impossible ... it means that for each of 20+ tags in the top 40 tags, you must have (non-CW) answers totalling 15 score in that tag.

    It is the later then; thank you for clarifying. For the record, 15 points would still be possible across 20 tags in 2 scenarios: (1) you could get 19 0-score answers and 1 15-score answer, and (2) answers count for all tags so assume i have 15 1-score answers, but 5 of those have a second tag. In both these scenarios I would have 15 points across 20 tags... it seemed a little easy for a silver, but I just wanted to ask. Feb 3, 2012 at 18:23
