In Stack Overflow there is a tag and a tag. Both are natural tags for the go programming language. It wouldn't make sense to merge the tags and get rid of one, can they be made synonymous or equivalent instead?

If you click on , you should find that there is a synonyms tab, which shows and as synonyms. Try both of those tags - you'll see you end up back at . This has either already been done, or done in response to this question, I can't tell which :) if you look at this page you can see when tag synonyms were proposed. golang was created jul 16 '10 at 15:51 by Bill the Lizard, as was go-language.

Searches for the 'go' and 'golang' tags turn up different results. So if its recent then maybe some reindexing would need to occur. Otherwise, not sure what that means. –  Bill Jan 13 '12 at 12:51
    
@Bill hmmm - if I type [golang] into the search box it redirects to go; perhaps there's an issue with this bug report - if I type golang as you say it searches for the phrase golang as opposed to recognising it is a synonym... –  user142852 Jan 13 '12 at 12:55
