After getting more spam notifications
last week, I started investigating the feasibility of using Stack Overflow (usage of which was proposed at the last Jade User Group as a better alternative to these forums).
There is a curveball with this. The existing 'jade' tag is setup as a tag synonym
which redirects to 'pug'. That project was previously called 'jade' until it was forced to rename
. However, while it's not occurring as often, there are still questions being asked about pug which use 'jade' terminology
FYI - For anyone aware of the Java Agent DEvelopment Framework (also referred to as JADE) - This gets discussed on Stack Overflow as well, but the agents-jade
tag is already used which avoids confusion.
As we'd ideally be able to use the jade tag, and pug shouldn't be referred to as that anymore - I've asked if the jade tag can be re-purposed
for us to use.
While there doesn't appear to be any technical reason against it (following some debate), there's no justification for this to happen (yet) either, because we aren't already using the site yet for JADE related questions.
Hence, the recommendation is to use a 'jade-platform' tag initially (unless there's a better suggestion?)
Later on, we can revisit using the jade tag, when the need is demonstrated by on-topic questions about JADE being posted. Until then, we'd need to avoid using the jade tag (as that'll redirect to pug and cause confusion).
Before posting an initial "What is JADE?" question to get things started ... Are others still keen on this idea?
