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

- 354 questions, just suggested a wiki excerpt

- 2 questions, no wiki

Is there any difference between these two tags? I assume that they are both used for questions related to using the API. I suspect that one has just become vastly more popular than the other for some reason, or perhaps that is just a newly-created and redundant tag.

If there is no discernible difference then I suggest we merge -> .

Here's the thing: as a developer, you could choose the hard route and build a program that complements OpenOffice or uses OpenOffice file formats without using their published api. This indicates to me that perhaps two distinct tags are warranted.

However, I'll hazard a guess that a large number (more than half?) of the current questions should really fit under openoffice-api. And given the low number of openoffice-api questions, I think the most expedient solution here is to just retag those two questions and be done with it.

Questions about the file formats would be better tagged opendocument (now 21 questions), wouldn't they? – Paŭlo Ebermann Nov 7 '11 at 16:12
