When should the elisp tag be used?
In your answers, please provide:
- A description of when the tag should be used and when it shouldn't be used.
- Some actual examples of questions where the tag should be used.
- Some actual examples of questions where the tag should not be used, and if relevant what other tag should be used.
It may be that there shouldn't be a tag called
elisp at all, perhaps with several different tags called
elisp-SOMETHING. If you think so, please explain what those alternate tags should be and why.
There's a tag wiki description, but we haven't enforced it effectively so far, and there's no consensus as to what it means in practice. So we need to at least clarify it, and we might end up changing its intent. We've had a prior discussion about the its wording, but before we can conclude on that, we need to decide what it should be saying!
The only meta discussion I could find that discusses elisp is Tags on Emacs.SE seem less useful than they could be and it doesn't help much on this count.
