Should we merge into ?

  • This should be tagged with "tags". Or when we have reached a resolution with "retag-request". :)

1 Answer 1


is better than , but neither is a good tag. The problem is that any software can have them and the tags will get stuck on everything from "human errors to errors in any kind of software in the space".

I.e. both and only work well if there is another tag that further specifies them. Then it is better to make the tag more specific:

  • The most common exception/error is "out-of-gas", and all current questions tagged with exceptions can actually be tagged with "out-of-gas". Should we replace/rename exceptions with "out-of-gas"? Then should we also delete errors ?

  • Out-of-gas sounds much more specific, so I'd think that would be a good idea (I don't know a whole lot about Ethereum though).

  • @eth: I would have probably posted it as another answer here instead since it aims to resolve the issue asked here. :)
