After we decided we don't need version specific tags, nothing had changed:

  • got an average of 1 question/day in the last 30 days
  • In the last 24 hours, it got 6 questions.
  • has an worse unanswered rate than : 57% vs 52% for the last 30 days, 87% vs 70% in the last 7.

In summary, questioner asking questions with the tag jessie tend to be worse off than those that use just debian as tag. Can we bury it under 6 feet again?

Apparently was silently created 10 months ago by some user. stretch, and should have the same fate. and were late to the party.

    There are also a bunch of fedora25 fedora24 etc. – mattdm Feb 27 '17 at 17:15
  • @mattdm slow grind for those – Braiam Feb 28 '17 at 13:49
  • Question from ignorance: why a slow grind? terdon merged them previously; I assume it was an O(1) operation on his part...? – Jeff Schaller Mar 1 '17 at 0:57
  • @JeffSchaller we, as community, can handle it. We don't need mom and dad every time we need to clean something up. – Braiam Mar 1 '17 at 2:07
  • I don't doubt we can do it -- I've made several smaller-scale efforts to clean up some tags; I just wondered if there was an easier, more-direct way to do it. If manually re-tagging is "it", I'm happy to help. – Jeff Schaller Mar 1 '17 at 3:15

    Manually re-tagging is "it" — at least for 10k+ users inline tag editing makes it less painful (especially with the Fedora tags; just backspace over the last two characters, then hit space and enter). – Stephen Kitt Mar 1 '17 at 8:25
  • fedora24 and fedora25 are emptied out as of this moment – Jeff Schaller Mar 2 '17 at 0:24
  • fedora23 has been cleared out – Jeff Schaller Mar 4 '17 at 17:44
  • rhel7 has been cleared out – Jeff Schaller Mar 4 '17 at 18:48
  • Is the next step to have a moderator merge the tags? – Jeff Schaller Mar 8 '17 at 12:06
  • I'm disturbed by the assumption that questions are unanswered because of their low quality. – Tomáš Zato Mar 8 '17 at 12:21
  • @JeffSchaller no, the tags are no more. As long as they aren't recreated (if you have 10k check the new tags tool) we are done. – Braiam Mar 8 '17 at 12:28
  • @TomášZato I didn't address the quality of the questions... – Braiam Mar 8 '17 at 12:29
  • Could they be recreated, though? Just trying to keep things clean. – Jeff Schaller Mar 8 '17 at 12:30
  • @JeffSchaller as long as someone has the privilege, but there's a warning. – Braiam Mar 8 '17 at 12:33

I've cleaned up the and tags. As I understand it, if the tags don't get any new content they should be automatically deleted.
