This is not reflected in anything I can find on the wiki, and I've done an incomplete search of the subject fields on this forum to see if this has been discussed.  Could you please clarify this for me?  Should I a) not be adding {{key|source}} to objects and b) should I be adding content in such a way that a single source tag on the changeset is valid for all content in that changeset (this has major implications for my editing behavior).  Thanks. --ceyockey

Source is still a valid,useful tag.

Are you sure you/they are not getting confused with the 'created_by' tag 
which is deprecated & should automatically be added to a changeset's 
meta data?
