What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

There are several cases where tags are synonymous, except for a hyphen. Apart from (which I doubt has a or synonym), the tags should be automatically merged.

Examples include thread-pool versus threadpool and multi-dimensional versus multidimensional.

As to which one should be canonical: I'm more pedantic about English than most people, and even I don't care.
