There are currently:
- 61 questions tagged software-design
- 214 questions tagged design
- 47 questions tagged architecture
Some questions are tagged with a combination of those tags.
I'm not sure what benefit these tags have.
The [software-design] wiki mentions design concepts, design considerations, and modeling language as topics, but I find those to be nebulous terms. As for the characteristics to be avoided (rigidity, fragility, and immobility), we would consider them routinely in every review anyway, right?
The [design] wiki just seems to have a lot of words that don't say anything.
The [architecture] wiki also doesn't say much, but at least it's brief.
In the worst case, the tags' existence encourages questions that are not strictly code review and questions that are clearly off-topic.
Would anyone else be in favour of eliminating these tags? Or perhaps someone could enlighten me instead. If we don't eliminate them, then surely at least design and software-design should be synonymized?
