What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I think and should be synonyms. Since is more explicit, it can be the main tag.

Tag counts:

These need some skill to retag. People are tagging stuff as add-ins when it's for VS2012, and as VSX when it's for 2008, and so on.

My specific request is for the synonym, but if anyone is inspired to write a tag wiki and do some retagging, that would be great too. These questions are fragmented across the tags and I think people are missing questions and answers that would help them.

I don't know about the topic but isn't it conceivable that someone asks about a tool that they want to provide for both 2008 and 2012 and thus tag it as both vsix and visual-studio-addins? –  Joachim Sauer Oct 9 '12 at 14:07
    
They would almost certainly need to write two tools. And deciding to support VS2008 now, when both 2010 and 2012 versions are out there, is a very low return activity. In any case, they would certainly need to ask two questions. –  Kate Gregory Oct 9 '12 at 14:11
