I'm not entirely sure that the G1 Garbage Collector even needs its own tag, but I don't have a problem with it either.

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure that the HTC Dream (alias G1) doesn't need its own tag (it was the first Android handset, but doesn't really have any real-world impact these days). Three out of five questions tagged are actually about this phone (however, all 3 of them are actually generic Android questions and not really G1-specific).

If the G1 GC gets its own tag, I'd vote for (or better yet: ) just to avoid any potential confusion and tag misuse.

And is gone. I've just retagged that last such question as . (actually, I was looking at the wrong tab). I can't retag those as , as it only differs in punctuation.

  • Is this answered then? The g1 tag is still present, and you make good points about it not really being necessary these days. – sharakan Nov 1 '12 at 14:52
