The top-voted¹ answer to the discussion Is software identification on-topic? says that (some) identification questions should be on-topic.
Because of this, the question Wiki software being used by Gnome was recently reopened.
Neither the question nor the answer seem to be good according to our "old" question/answer quality guidelines, which is because identification questions follow different rules: questions don’t include any software requirements, answers consist of just a software name/link (+ possibly trivia information)².
Should the quality guidelines be updated for these kind of questions/answers (e.g., to note that the current guidelines don’t apply to them)?
How should we vote? When would down-votes be warranted? A suitable answer to an identification question would typically be deleted if it were a recommendation question.
¹ Currently 13 vs. 7 / 2 / 0 / 0
² Unless the answer suggests a different software (which is, if I understand it correctly, what the top-voted answer proposes should be possible), in which case the answer author might have to guess what OP cares about, because OP doesn’t (have to) specify any requirements.
