What Does the Prefix "Post" Mean in Music?

Post-rock, post-punk, post-metal, post-hardcore; everybody knows the genres and can classify bands as fitting into them. However, is there a common consensus about what the prefix "post" actually means? I always considered it to be a much more diluted, ambient version of a genre, but once I discovered post-hardcore and post-punk, I realized that that wasn't necessarily the case. So, with this in mind, what do you all consider the prefix to mean?
