As part of the ongoing manufacturer tag clean up I came across this question:
Which is tagged with sonicwall, I was wondering if this is considered a manufacturer or is it now a brand under the Dell overlords.
I'll post an answer to bump this so it can get some attention or disposition.
Even if Sonicwall is now part of Dell, it's still just a brand label, not a specific product. So I don't see a question as to whether it's a manufacturer tag. The question would be whether or not to create brand-specific replacement tags for the various products in the questions.
It would be great if subject matter experts weigh in on whether Sonicwall products are unique in a way that makes a difference for tagging purposes. Even better would be if people familiar with the products do the honors of cleaning up these tags based on their own knowledge.
However, that's the cleanup. I don't see a reason for not adding this tag to the list. People can always delay cleanup until there is more feedback here on the best way to do it. It isn't like we're running out of tags and questions to clean up.
