Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

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
