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

(115 questions) and (566 questions) seem to be referring to the same thing, namely, FastCGI.

The excerpts for these tags are the same:

FastCGI is a protocol for interfacing interactive programs with a web server. FastCGI is a variation on the earlier Common Gateway Interface (CGI); FastCGI's main aim is to reduce the overhead associated with interfacing the web server and CGI programs, allowing a server to handle more web page requests at once.

There are even some 27 questions with both tags at the same time.

Can be made a synonym of ?

Update: I now have enough rep on Stack Overflow to propose tag synonyms, but I still can't do this on my own because “creating a tag synonym requires 5 score in this tag”.

Definitely a duplication, and making the real tag and the alias is the best way round. Good catch.
