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've seen that such a tag merge request was already put in about one year ago.

It seems that it might have to be repeated:

  • (used 6,276 times) — seems to be the main tag. That's fine.
  • (also used 6,276 times) seems to be a synonym for . I suppose that's fine, too.
  • (used 154 times) — I suppose this ought to be merged with , and installed as another synonym for .

is already a synonym of .

The questions remaining in the former tag are there because they were never merged into the latter (currently this is a manual process).

thanks for answering. Please forgive my ignorance, but would I have to request this again in a separate answer, or will someone eventually get to merging them? (Not that I'm fanatic about these two tags, I'm just curious how this process usually works.) – stakx Feb 1 '11 at 9:36
@stakx: Usually a mod will get to merging it eventually (maybe soon if they see this question). It's not as big a deal now because any new questions with [win32api] will get auto-retagged to [winapi], and tag searches should get auto-remapped as well. – Jon Seigel Feb 1 '11 at 17:25
