Is there any difference between these two tags? I assume that they are both used for questions related to using the OpenOffice.org 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 openoffice.org 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
