This is a request to fix and then merge one tag for NSFetchedResultsController.


  1. Correct the spelling of x 805 to [nsfetchedresultscontroller].
  2. Merge x 88 into the newly corrected tag from step 1.
  • Why not make it a tag synonym of the correctly spelled one?

This is currently practically impossible, as far as I know. The maximum tag length is 25 characters. That is the whole reason behind the "misspelling" of .

So the options are to either allow longer tags, or to simply choose the most common one and retag the other questions to that.

  • I was not aware of the maximum length until you pointed it out. Can the tag with 88 posts be merged in?

    Yes, 25 is the maximum length in the tags table. Feb 6, 2013 at 18:58
  • @BryanLuby I'm sure that's possible. But given the relatively low number of questions with that tag, perhaps a manual effort and overall cleanup might not be a bad idea either?

  • @Bart I don't have retagging privileges yet. Plus I don't want to flood the review queue with 88 edits and swamp the front page.
