To me, private-key-format is a superset of wallet-import-format as WIF is a private key format, but other private key formats such as xprv are not. However tagging WIF questions as both is probably not useful, and we tag questions about the other private key formats as such. Then we could remove private-key-format, although I would prefer to keep it as catch-...
Never worked with either, but I thought that those were two not completely overlapping things.
The tag accounts refers to a specific feature of Bitcoin Core which finally is being removed. Accounting is about the process of keeping track of stuff. Gonna rename accounts to bitcoin-core-accounts.
Did you know that you can propose synonyms directly on tags?
Other users can then vote on your synonyms, they don't have to be created by mods necessarily. ;)
In case you had done that already and nobody noticed yet, I'll have to look into how proposed synonyms get voted on. Anyway, I can take a look at these a little later today, although I think some of ...
I think we should merge them all into fees. While the transaction-fees is also a good tag for discussing those fees in particular as opposed to fees charged by exchanges and what have you, I don't think there will be too much confusion.
I agree that the current tags are confusing. I don't think we should just merge them though. It seems like there are a couple distinct categories represented.
We should have three tags, weaknesses, security, wallet-security. Questions with attack, resilience, and vulnerability should be retagged or closed:
weaknesses would cover problems with Bitcoin that ...
They're describing different things. Deterministic wallets derive all keys from a seed. Hierarchical deterministic wallets derive subkeys from a seed, and generate subkeys from those. That allows you to share part of a wallet with someone else, which isn't possible with deterministic wallets.
All hd-wallet questions are deterministic questions, but not all ...
This is a very good suggestion, and exactly what meta is for.
I think you are right, and I would suggest that we merge solo into solo-mining, which users can suggest and mods can do by themselves. That way, it is only a few clicks and we don't have to manually edit questions whatsoever. :)
As it is, I would assume that questions tagged with bitcoin-protocol are a subset of protocol.
I think it that I created the bitcoin-protocol in March, but today I am not sure if that made sense: While in the long run the protocols might further distinguish and it would make sense to have a bitcoin-protocol to cater to issues that specifically refer to ...
