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 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

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
