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

These two tags clearly cover the same topic:

  • (146 questions)

    For questions related to data types. Do not use this tag for questions related to the physical act of typing on a keyboard, as such questions are almost always off-topic.

  • (6,913 questions)

    Types, and type systems, are used to enforce levels of abstraction in programs.

should be retagged to and there should probably be a synonym as well.

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Perhaps we could start by fixing the tag wiki for types. There's almost certainly other tags we're going to want to evaluate first, like strong-typing and type-systems. – Robert Harvey May 28 '13 at 17:55
@RobertHarvey: Yeah, I don't think that tag wiki is useful. There's a whole family of strong-typing, weak-typing, dynamic-typing, static-typing, and I think it can make sense to keep those. Not sure about type-systems. – hammar May 28 '13 at 18:04
