JBoss Application Server has a new name - 'WildFly'.

Shouldn't the relevant tags be renamed in Stack Overflow?

EDIT : I agree with what @Oded says. But, down the line, people might start calling it as 'JbossWildFly' because it is tagged so in StackOverflow(and this site is quite popular). Something like though WEB-INF doesn't contain INF ormation but only executables, but still its called WEB-INF.

    You rename a tag and suddenly, everyone who knows the old name can't find those questions... A new tag with the old tag being its synonym is probably a better option. – Oded Apr 22 '13 at 8:54

    I'd rather they changed the name back. – Dave Newton Apr 22 '13 at 10:05

Lets say 100 people used the tag JbossAS, then you renamed it to WildFly. If other people didn't know about the new name change to WildFly, they wouldn't be able to find those other questions. - This is basically what Oded said above, +1 to that comment. I just tried to expand what he said in a little more detail.
