I have observed that Lisp questions about Common Lisp have two tags: clisp and common-lisp.

Currently clisp has 23 and common lisp has 259 questions.

Isn't it a good idea to merge them both? When I log into SO, I have to click on both to see the new questions about Common Lisp, although both are about the same dialect of Lisp.

I think having a single tag for Common Lisp is more organized.

I'm not sure they're the same thing. CLISP is a particular implementation of Common Lisp.

Update: I've already looked through and found one question where someone was talking specifically about the CLISP implementation, so I don't think we can torpedo the tag.

If by CLISP, people really mean Common List, I would suggest that first we merge the two, then we make clisp an alias of common-lisp just in case someone will create the same tag again. This may require addition work though but I think it will be a good feature.
