Stemming from this discussion, would it be good for us to tag questions that involve core hacks? I am thinking something that is non-offensive involving the word 'trac', since trac is the proper place to air out these requests. Currently, we have no tags officially classifying a trac-related question.

We could use something like:

  • trac-feature-request
  • trac-bug

Any suggestions?

  • +1 on adding these tags

  • I am especially fond of trac-bug, though I've not actually run into too many such questions. Also, I think anything that would fit trac-bug would qualify as out of scope, and the question would get closed, anyway. Commented Feb 22, 2012 at 17:01
  • One thing to keep in mind when deciding on the name of the tag is whether it'll be obvious and easy to discover. If a new user comes in and posts a question that exposes a problem in Wordpress core, will they know that [trac-bug] is the tag they want?

    @AnnaLear I think the [trac-bug] tag would be more for moderators or experienced users to add to a questions once it's identified as a trac issue. Commented Feb 23, 2012 at 14:54

    I agree, what about core-trac? A user would likely type the word core in if anything. Not sure if that tag would make sense though.

  • @ChipBennett - What say you about core-trac? Commented Feb 27, 2012 at 12:43
  • I think i still prefer trac-bug and trac-feature-request. I doubt that "core" would have any more meaning to an end user than "trac" does. Besides, I figure these tags would be added retrospectively by the community, rather than by the person asking the question - so we should make them as meaningful/useful to the community as possible.

  • @ChipBennett Since I'm a bit of a n00b at this part, is there a proper procedure to adding new tags like this? Commented Feb 27, 2012 at 12:59
  • @BrianFegter um, I'm with you. :) I suppose it's just a matter of establishing a convention, and then using it. I've actually already used trac-bug once, so it should exist. Somebody just needs to write up the tag wiki. Commented Feb 27, 2012 at 13:11
