What should we do with ? There is currently a tag wiki edit proposed to read

Aluminum is one type of capacitors. This tag can also be for cases/boxes, if the question is electronics related.

I don't think a tag should have two distinct meanings. Do we seperate it into two tags, or just give it one meaning?

I think we should eliminate the aluminum tag. We have more descriptive or more accurate tags for both uses. For example, aluminum capacitors could be filed under and aluminum cases/boxes should just be under or .

  • \$\begingroup\$ I edited it out directly. On one question where they meant aluminum-capacitor I made it just that. Otherwise I removed it. \$\endgroup\$
