What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I think the tags (333 questions) and (66 questions) should be merged with (2,584 questions). They could also be merged with (2,484 questions), I think the other way is better.

This calls for some discussion weather should be made a synonym for . I noted that 134 questions has both tags "index" and "indexing". Is having both and motivated? I think no but I am not sure.

I also found another tag which is redundant. (333 questions) is as I see it a synonym for (2,330 questions). The mysql documentation for "full-text-..." supports this as I see it. Hence I think should be removed and made a synonym.

Not sure I agree with the [full-text*] part though. They talk about the same stuff more or less, but from a different perspective in my understanding (-indexing from the DBA point of view, -search from the application point of view). But I don't know much about any of that so... – Mat Jul 19 '12 at 11:42
@Mat I don't think Olof meant merge full-text tags with indexing tags, just reduce the number of full-text tags. – Aaron Bertrand Jul 19 '12 at 12:29
@AaronBertrand: " full-text-indexing ... is as I see it a synonym for full-text-search " - I understand this as merging/synonymyzyng these two tags, which I'm not a big fan of on the face of it. (But as I said, not my domain.) All in favor of squishing the various other index tags together though. – Mat Jul 19 '12 at 12:49
@Mat I'm in the SQL Server crowd and I think that merge is logical for both SQL Server and MySQL. – Aaron Bertrand Jul 19 '12 at 12:56
