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've just seen edits to the tag wikis for and and thought "Strange, there are already and tags with perfectly cromulent tag wikis; why is there duplicate work?"

And I saw that there are a few questions (24 and 53 respectively) tagged with those tags. I suggest them as tag synonyms but experience tells me that those don't get votes, so I'm asking for votes (for both tags) or mod interaction in getting those synonyms in the system.

Normally I'd just retag those questions, but I'm pretty sure that those tags would pop up again pretty quickly.

And yes: Java 1.5 is the same as Java 5 and Java 1.6 is the same as Java 6.

Update: There are still not votes on the synonyms, people seem to agree that they should be here, but no one seems to be able to vote.

Something like my question about android related tags. I think that's a good idea. – rekire Oct 25 '12 at 14:30
+1 for using cromulent correctly in the real world – Richard Tingle Jul 12 '13 at 13:15

The synonyms are now in place. If there are no objections, I'll do the merge later today; I don't see any obvious issues preventing it.

Edit: Merged.
