What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

I can't formally suggest these tag synonyms because I don't have 5 votes in either, but it seems to me that and should be the same tag.

@MatthewRead: Probably because readonly is a language keyword. –  Robert Harvey Apr 19 '12 at 20:47
    
@RobertHarvey Ah, that's fair enough. –  Matthew Read Apr 19 '12 at 20:55

I disagree, I think @Robert's tag wiki edit is what's needed here. readonly is indeed a language keyword, and it means something different than "read-only" status might imply on a file. –  Cody Gray Apr 20 '12 at 1:55
