Per a previous discussion here on Meta, I went through all questions tagged . There were no questions about concurrency or IPC with this tag, so it was irrelevant, but I would recommend something along the lines of or for these questions. I used the tag to account for process model and methodology questions and simply removed the tag from "how do I do X" questions that didn't involve a formal process or concurrency issues.

I'm not sure how, but this tag is now dead to me.

    thanks for doing that -- I kicked the tag process so it should remove any orphans immediately. Sep 3, 2011 at 13:55
  • @Jeff Is it also blacklisted or anything like that? If not, I suppose the question is "should it be?"

  • @Jeff The only problem is what is it a synonym for? In software development, process could refer to an instance of a running program, converting data between forms, a development methodology, business processes (especially in the context of business process modeling). I'm not sure it's possible to synonym-ize "process" by itself.

There are no questions tagged with , so it'll go away in the next day. If someone recreates it, we can deal with more permanent solutions.

  • Yeah. I got rid of the tag from every question that formerly had the tag and replaced it with a better tag (or, in most cases, tags).
