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

I think we can consolidate these tags; keep , and set as synonym.

If you read each tag's wiki, you'll see they have virtually nothing to do with each other. – meagar Oct 23 '12 at 13:14
Yes, I see that now. I've been spending so much time looking at session-timeout questions that I momentarily couldn't imagine the other uses of timeout. – Eyal Oct 23 '12 at 13:19

and are not synonyms, as the first doesn't imply there is any session involved. is specific enough to exist as separate tag.

I cannot tell you if is really helpful, but merging the tags is not the solution.

I don't see how they have much to do with each other aside from the word "timeout"

Session timeout could have something to do with a login and saving to a session etc, whereas a timeout can have to do any number of timers.
