Ummm.... this question was titled with . What happened?

@ThomasOwens merged into , which now needs a second pass from the community.

We've done a lot of great work in the cleanup of the (and ) tag, but it has become complicated enough that we need to handle the work in its own question.

The major things that need to happen are:

  1. Close, lock and/or edit the remaining open questions
  2. Burninate the tag from existing closed questions
  3. Burninate / replace the tag from closed, locked questions, which are obviously more complicated and require moderator involvement.

Please see the answers for progress on these three separate goals.

For reference, also see current tag wiki:

Questions about the environment in which software development happens. This includes the hardware, software, and processes and methodologies used. Questions are expected to be unique to software development and require the expertise of people with education or experience in the field of software development.
