The fenced=yes tag indicates whether the outer perimeter of something is fenced.
So for general information on how to map fences and associated features please see barriers.
Once upon a time (before 2008) there were no barrier tags, because nobody had invented them yet. In that time the only way to map a fence in Openstreetmap was with fenced=yes. Between May 2016 and June 2023 fenced=* was deprecated on this page under the false assumption that fenced=yes and barrier=fence had the same meaning. Between Jan 2019 and June 2022 iD encouraged users to replace fenced=yes with barrier=fence. Therefore almost all fences mapped since the invention of barrier=fence are (re)mapped using that newer tag.
