Ubuntu is trying to tell me something
In the course of removing the warning tag from a few posts I encountered the tag messages, which is currently attached to 62 questions.
It seems these questions are about:
- wanting to send some information somewhere somehow, probably in words.
- some information, probably in the form of words, being produced or failing to be produced by some process
This seems to me to be an excessively diverse range of situations to be meaningfully grouped by a tag.
Is there some specific, well-defined meaning of messages in the context of Ubuntu that I am not aware of (maybe
/var/log/messages?) and that we might be able to try to restrict this tag to with proper usage guidance and... a lot of vigilance? Is there another reason why this tag is useful?
Or, should we edit those posts (taking care to improve everything else about the post if possible while doing so) to get rid of this tag?
