I've noticed that nearly every question about scripting ends up getting tagged with both of these tags. Do we really need them both?

As I see it, scripting in Blender can only be done in Python, and the only time while using Blender you would encounter raw Python would be while scripting. Is there anything one adds that the other doesn't?

No

There are currently questions here that use but aren't directly related to and there are sure to be more in the future.

Example: How to make Blender use Python2.x?

  • $\begingroup$ why not using a "python-scripting" tag instead of "scripting" to exclude C/C++ and easy tag choice (auto-complete) $\endgroup$ – Bithur Mar 8 '15 at 19:03

No.

As blender expands, they may also be referring to OSL. They also may be referring just to Python(as stated in iKlsR's answer).

  • $\begingroup$ OSL does not belong under either tag and should have one of it's own. $\endgroup$ – Aldrik Jun 9 '13 at 21:50
  • $\begingroup$ Agreed, but I'm saying that an OSL script may be tagged. $\endgroup$ – CharlesL Jun 9 '13 at 22:46

To share my 2 cents . . .

They might also be C/C++ scripting/plugin development.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Anything C/C++ is off-topic and "C/C++ scripting?" :) $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Jun 4 '13 at 13:24
  • $\begingroup$ @iKlsR off-topic? C/C++ scripting $\endgroup$ – Daniel Pendergast Jun 4 '13 at 13:28
  • $\begingroup$ From a developer or even average user viewpoint this is actually not directly related to Blender. See #5 here meta.blender.stackexchange.com/questions/1/… (I did not make this list by myself, it was from bits and pieces contributed here and there) $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Jun 4 '13 at 13:31
