I noticed that two tags exist for the Python IDE IDLE on Stack Overflow, and . They should most likely be merged, considering that they cover the same topic.

I think this shouldn't even be a synonym. We should burninate idle and be done with it. – Emrakul Apr 4 '13 at 20:32
But there are more questions under idle than there are under python-idle. I guess I'll work on merging the tag wikis. – Nathan2055 Apr 4 '13 at 20:34
I cleaned up the tag wiki for python-idle, pending edit review. – Nathan2055 Apr 4 '13 at 20:38
And the tag wiki has been updated! I still think we should make idle a synonym, though. – Nathan2055 Apr 4 '13 at 20:55

1 Answer 1

Yes, please someone create a tag synonym.

should be the main tag (more specific) and should be a synonym. I'd do this myself but haven't yet accumulated enough upvotes on the tags.

Yeah, I agree that we should keep python-idle as the main tag, makes the most since here. – Nathan2055 Apr 4 '13 at 20:31
I'll put it to the Python chat room; surprisingly, with 11k upvotes on the python tag I have none for python-idle. – Martijn Pieters Apr 4 '13 at 20:39
Actually, I can do it all. Done. Woah - power rush to the head. Need to sit down. – Oded Apr 4 '13 at 20:40
Thanks, @Oded! :-) – Martijn Pieters Apr 4 '13 at 20:42
@Oded if you find yourself in need another power kick, you can add the status-completed tag to this question. – Cody Gray Apr 5 '13 at 4:37
