I noticed that many questions related to Scrum, Agile and other related tags are often closed on Stack Overflow as off-topic and migrated to programmers.stacexchange. Should we simply migrate whole these tags to programmers.stackexchange? I don't see too much point in having half of questions on SO and half of questions on programmers-SE. Also it would be nice to somehow notify users when asking new questions with these tags that they should ask it on programmers instead.

  • This is more about migrating whole tags with their questions so that tag "doesn't exist" in SO. If new Q/A sites are created for special topics why not migrate related content to that sites? – Ladislav Mrnka Mar 22 '11 at 11:46

I'm against wholesale migration of questions from one site to another (regardless of the sites involved). As I explained in my answer linked to by marcog each question must be judged on it's own merits.

A wholesale migration would migrate bad questions along with the good as well as inappropriate questions that were badly tagged. Closed questions could be ignored, so they're not an issue.

    And there are mixed-tag questions as well. – Henk Holterman Mar 22 '11 at 14:28

No, it is not that easy, as a question may include how to write unit tests etc

  • If it is about "how to write unit tests" instead of "how to write unit test for this method" then it still suitable for programmers.SE. – Ladislav Mrnka Mar 22 '11 at 12:25
