    I think you've been told a couple of times that [retag-requests] should not be tagged [bug]. Please consider for the next time. – slhck Jan 30 '12 at 16:15
  • @slhck I don’t think they have the goal of reaching community consensus. – kinokijuf Jan 30 '12 at 16:50

    Well, it's not a bug due to a programming error or any technical fault. This question is of no interest to the developer team at all. Community consensus on whether a tag should be merged with another is expressed through votes on the question itself. It has always been like that. You can see the cross-correlation by looking at the related tags for both discussion and retag-request. – slhck Jan 30 '12 at 17:10

    In future, keep in mind that [bug] is not a synonym for [what-irks-me] and is reserved for system/development issues – random Jan 30 '12 at 17:26
  • @kinokijuf please don't create useless meta tags – Sathyajith Bhat Feb 5 '12 at 14:32

    @kinokijuf it doesn't mean you go create it. – Sathyajith Bhat Feb 6 '12 at 15:04
  • 802.11 == Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi & 802.11 are subsets of wireless-networking (as is Bluetooth, ZigBee, GSM, etc...). – Breakthrough Apr 16 '12 at 13:24

    Brilliant community bot--bumped a 5 yr old status-declined thread because there are no upvoted or accepted answers. – fixer1234 Apr 19 '17 at 9:06

There's more:

Not too certain if 802.11* should be mapped to or not

  • I have a bad feeling about merging those 802.11 into wireless networking - which is why I haven't taken action sooner. Perhaps we could merge *11g & *11n into a plain old 802.11 tag. – studiohack Feb 5 '12 at 4:35

    @studiohack tbh I'm not keen on either. – Sathyajith Bhat Feb 5 '12 at 5:15

    Counter argument to consider: People troubleshooting their n settings might benefit from their own 802.11n, the same goes for people trying to support older 802.11g standards. – Tamara Wijsman Feb 5 '12 at 14:31
