I do not have enough rep in either containers or container to create a tag alias, but IMHO it would be needed, hence this request. If this gets agreement it would be worthy to get it done earlier rather than later, to prevent proliferation.
IMHO containers (37 questions now) should be the tag and
container (7 questions now and no tag description) should be the synonym.
I also wonder if there is something that can be done about containers being (mis)used for specific container technologies despite the tag description clearly guiding against it (emphasis mine):
Use for generic questions on containers that do not fall under a specific container technology, like Docker, LXC, FreeBSD Jails, OpenBSD sysjails, Solaris Containers, WPARs, etc. Also use where the specific technology is not relevant to the question.
Sample questions where I'd consider the tag misused:
- Networking between Docker containers
- Windows Service installation on Docker Container
- Developing inside a Docker image?
I also just noticed misused re-tagging efforts, for example:
