What is considered to be a good frequency to do a tag clean up? I've initiated something like that two years ago with Geoff Oxberry.
Actions to be considered:
- Identify misspelled tags and correct them
- Identify equivalent tags, select the most appropriate one and retag the others (this includes different spellings of packages like "numpy" and "NumPy")
Identify very little used tags and, if possible, merge them in large scope tags
Review descriptions of the tags
- Tag untagged questions with at least one tag
Do you think this should be systematically organized (every year?) or should this evolve "organically".
To do this efficiently, it would be nice to be able to access a csv list of the tag database (tag name, tag count, tag description).
