|This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: barrier=fence. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have "banned features".
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change "deprecated" tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the Automated Edits code of conduct.
Once upon a time 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. Almost all fences mapped since the invention of barrier=fence are (re)mapped using that new tag.
The reason this page still exists is, to let people finding objects tagged with fenced=yes know what it means.
So for general information on how to map fences and associated features please see barriers.
