Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

The Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR) is a .NET Framework component for dynamic programming that runs on top of the Common Language Runtime (CLR).

There is a tag for questions about the DLR, whereas the tag is known to appear on new questions every now and then, eventually being swapped for the full name. They haven't been made synonyms for some reason. Would it be appropriate to make them synonyms, or does also mean something entirely different?

If we make and synonyms, which should be the master tag? What about and the nonexistent synonym ?

Well, I'm personally not a fan of the shortcut synonyms being the masters. Imagine going to a site where everything was acronyms and you didn't know what they meant... – animuson Nov 13 '12 at 5:16
I've had to retag dlr a few times this past week. I think the synonym is called for, with the verbose one being the master. – Charles Dec 5 '12 at 3:51
