At the moment there are six questions tagged :

  • Four are Unix/Linux questions, in which [rc] means runcom.
  • Two are Windows questions, in which [rc] means Release Candidate.

I don't think tags are meant to be ambiguous in this way. What, if anything, should we do to keep this issue under control?


Not any more.

There's nothing really much to do here. as in "release candidate" is a shitty meta-tag and shouldn't have been used.

Spell them out, rather then abbreviate them?
