Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just saw a question on SO: get pointer for CallInst? which has been heavily tagged:

llvm clang llvmclang llvm-clang

It seems rather clear to me that the latter 3 could be merged into a single one, in fact merging llvmclang and llvm-clang has already been suggested (I do not seem to have a high enough score to downvote it).

I tried to suggest merging clang and llvmclang, as well as clang and llvm-clang, and in both cases my request was denied.

  • I cannot suggest llvmclang as a synonym for clang because it is itself a (suggested) master
  • I cannot suggest llvm-clang as a synonym for clang because it is already a (suggested) synonym for llvmclang

I would appreciate if someone could step in and merge those 3 tags (preferably to the shortest tag...)

The proper form would be llvm-clang not llvmclang. – agf Sep 1 '11 at 9:40
@agf: I would argue that the proper form is clang itself, because most of clang (short of the code generation modules) only rely on small utility tools hosted in LLVM. – Matthieu M. Sep 1 '11 at 9:45
I was just addressing which of those two would correctly point to the other the way tags are named, I wasn't making a judgement about whether clang should be separate from llvm-clang. – agf Sep 1 '11 at 9:47
+1, I was looking at a question, with the llvmclang tag and then saw llvmclang and llvm-clang and thought shouldn't those just be clang; secondly llvmclang and llvm-clang do not have tag wikis while clang does and it has a good one at that. – Dan D. Feb 17 '12 at 21:10
