I recently posted an exercise from the Rudin Introduction to Mathematical Analysis book, with solution: here. I tagged it , , and .
Is there a tag that is suitable for labeling textbook exercises? I could not find one.

@MarkDominus I am not aware of such tag and I don't think it's needed. (I don't consider a question taken from a book that much different from other questions.) I think mentioning the origin of the problem in the body of the question is sufficient.
My opinion is that should be used only for questions that really are homework assignments. But I know that some people use this tag if they want answer closer to suggestions and hints than to full solutions. (IIRC this was discussed somewhere. See e.g. this comment. Maybe you can find a question at meta devoted to this.)
But that is just my opinion.

@MarkDominus Perhaps you can ask at meta, if you think that such tag would be useful.

@MartinSleziak I put as a joke. It was in fact a homework assignment, although one I handed in 23 years ago. If you think I should remove it, I will.
 
As I wrote, some people use homework tag if they only want hints.
I don't see the in using homework tag in your question, but you should choose the tags - as you're posting the question.
I am not sure whether there is possibility to find out how many users have tags among ignored tags - which is perhaps the only thing which seems to me important enough to consider removing the tag.

I've retagged the question with tag, so the tag should be removed from the system during next 24 hours.
This was proposed in the long thread; the sduggestion received 4 upvotes.
The questions I've retagged: 1, 2, 3 and 4.
This was also briefly discussed in this chatroom: here, here and here
The third link should have been this one. (By mistake I've posted the same link twice.)
