So Jeff recently did some clean-up in the WPF tags and among other things mapped to α.

Now there is this current situation with two rather similar tags:

  • : 5,479 questions; wiki: "A general technique that binds two data/information sources together and maintains them in sync."
  • : 4,190 questions; wiki: "Binding provides a simple and consistent way for applications to present and interact with data."

I am personally not a great fan of as it sounds a bit vague and could probably mean different things depending on context, like dynamic binding for example. In general i would like to see one tag swallowing the other though, unless there are good arguments against that of course.


α - This makes my old synonym proposal superfluous; I cannot remove it myself though.
