AU server tags [was Re: ]

The problem with Ask Ubuntu is that tags need to be specific and useful
to identify a question.  The rules of a StackExchange site don't
necessarily match what the Ubuntu triage rules are.

We already have a tag for "Server" - - which would be regarding
a server.  The other problem is, almost every issue reported under the
'server' tag isn't necessarily server-specific, and many server-related
questions don't have that tag on them even though they'd be server related.

A second consideration is this question: "Are we going to actively
review questions as part of Server Team duties, both hired (read:
Canonical) and volunteer?"  I'm fairly certain I know the answer to the
first one of these, and the second one of these is a "If you are going
to volunteer, then just read the site."

Bugs filed on Ask Ubuntu get squished by me and the community as "File
an actual bug".

So I'm going to need clarification on the thoughts behind this idea,
before I can give a better answer.
