I don't have enough points to suggest tag synonyms so I post here instead. I browsed through the list of questions tagged and they all relate to the Knockout JS library.

Questions tagged with:

I guess we should merge first two tags (and may be the third tag as well).

Should the primary tag be "knockout" or "knockout-js"? Also, how should the version-specific tag look? –  casperOne May 8 '12 at 12:23
    
I guess "knockout" is better. It's the official name of the library. Home page at knockoutjs.com says simply Knockout. GitHub repo is github.com/SteveSanderson/knockout and the docs always uses "Knockout". On the other hand, "knockoutjs" has a lot more questions and is named in similar manner to "underscore.js" and "backbone.js" so may be "knockout.js" (mind the dot) is more suitable. –  Andrew Андрей Листочкин May 8 '12 at 12:59
    
It would seem the ".js" is something the JavaScript community adopted. I'm not totally against it, but we have a lot of tags that are specific to products/libraries that don't need that disambiguation (because the tag wiki is clear). Are you seeing that knockout is being inappropriately applied? If so, then it's a case for the ".js" but I'd rather go with "knockout" (and "knockout-2.0" or something similar for version-specific). –  casperOne May 8 '12 at 13:05
    
No, all "knockout" questions relate to that JS library. I like "knockout-2.0" as well. –  Andrew Андрей Листочкин May 8 '12 at 13:08
    
Alright, give me a bit. –  casperOne May 8 '12 at 13:09

Ok, based on the comments, I've done the following:

I also recommend that we do this with other libraries with "js" in them (unless it's specifically required to disambiguate or specifically part of the name, such as ).

After all, we don't have "jQueryjs". "scriptaliciouisjs", "html-agility-pack-.net", etc. There's no reason to use it here.

Ugly solution... If some JavaScript tags need .js, then it's better to give them all .js than only some. –  Emrakul May 10 '13 at 5:10
    
@KnightswhosayNi If it was actually called "knockout.js", then we'd name it that, but it's not; it's the name of the site, but we don't name things after the sites they are on, but what they're actually named. –  casperOne May 10 '13 at 11:34
    
Hmm, true. Still, it doesn't look quite right to me... –  Emrakul May 10 '13 at 13:13
