I came across this question that has two svn tags, I assume it is because of this retag request.

So can the batch retag facility check if there will be duplicate tags when it completes?

I've added a moderator function which deduplicates all current question tags, and all post history tag entries.

So the next time there's a duplicate tag problem, just flag one of them for moderator attention and we'll run the tag deduplicator page.

Does this mean a merge like stackoverflow.com/tags/session%20sessions (pending synonym merge) needs 35 manual de-duplications? I assumed they would be automatically de-duplicated... – sth Aug 26 '10 at 21:09

Or, perhaps simpler - have a daily script to de-dup them.

That would work for me, since it would clean up a lot that we might not be alerted to. – Bill the Lizard Oct 6 '09 at 19:29
I thought this script already existed, was I wrong? – perbert Oct 6 '09 at 21:30
