In his question Our wooes and future of platform plugins at WPSE Rarst proposed the following at the end:
Extension-specific tags (such as plugin-*) are eradicated. They serve little purpose and send wrong message about what is welcomed. I have seen "there is a tag for it so I am right to ask whatever I want" line of reasoning too many times.
No one answered to that point, Rarst reads that as agreement and I don’t. See our chat discussion.
I am afraid it went by unnoticed and it might have some unwelcome side effects to do that. We will still get WooCommerce/ACF/WP SEO/plugin X questions.
I am asking the community for explicit objections or agreement before we continue making certain tags synonyms for plugins.
Update: I have removed the tag synonym now. New questions can be tagged
woocommerce again, but the old questions (~1k, if I remember that correctly) didn’t get that tag back.
