This is a follow-up to Splitting the ports tag
Today I found that out of 24 questions tagged ports, there were:
- 12 about FreeBSD ports
- 10 about TCP or UDP ports
- one about GPIO ports
- one about a port of non-unix software
I retagged the TCP/IP ports questions to ip, tcp or udp as appropriate, but maybe we should have a ports tag. Perhaps a synonym of tcp, as UDP is a rare case? Or a tcpip-ports? Or tcp-ports and udp-ports as synonyms of tcp and udp? Should we ban ports?
Revising a year later, I retagged 12 ports questions to tcp. The TCP ports meaning seems to be gaining a little over the BSD meaning, which shows that ports shouldn't be about BSD ports. I still haven't seen a real point to tcpip-ports as a separate tag.
