We currently have several tags relevant for questions about technical writing:
Plus there are many other tags that apply to lots of types of writing, including technical writing, like tools, software, editing, style, and research.
Among that first group, we started with just technical-writing and then at some point we added api-documentation because that sub-category of tech writing has some different concerns and we want those questions to be easy to find.
API documentation isn't the only type of technical writing. Software documentation isn't the only kind of technical writing, for that matter. We're about to get some questions from the Technical Communication site, which is closing, so I looked at their tags. They include:
- documentation-generator (this is a type of software tool)
- automation (technical doc often uses automated build processes)
Should we enrich our current tag set? If so, how? I'm not proposing that we add all these or that we use the existing names, but the context might help us think about how to better serve our tech-writing questions.
