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

So the story goes:

I'm suggesting moving them all to cross-compilation due to precedent in the decision on resolving "compiling", "compile", and "compilation": Merge the "compiling", "compile" and "compilation" tags?

Though still exists to distinguish questions about innards or characteristics compilers themselves in absence of any input code, as opposed to problems one is having with a compilation step.

(There are no instances of , and I guess a narrow question about writing a cross-compiler could be tagged and .)

This is a pretty good suggestion. I agree compilation word is good enough to cover all the topics of

  • cross-compile
  • cross-compiling
  • cross-compilers
  • cross-compilation

But, tag synonyms might be a better choice than retaging all the questions.

If a merger is what you want, then merging the 49 question of cross-compile to cross-compiling is a good choice.

I wanted to tag it tag-merge, but retag-request is the tag-synonym for tag-merge. (When someone reads over my shoulder at the sentences I type and sees things like that, they perhaps have just cause for wondering if the things I do on the Internet make sense or are just gibberish. :P) – HostileFork Oct 18 '12 at 6:43
I think you should remove cross-compilers on that list. – Tshepang Oct 25 '12 at 19:16
@Tshepang, Please provide an explanation as well. – Starx Oct 25 '12 at 23:48
That should be reserved for when one is asking about cross-compilers, instead of, for example, cross-compiling. – Tshepang Oct 26 '12 at 5:39
