Those three meta tags are basically the same thing, and for the sake of cleanness we should merge them:

I would propose the tag synonym, but it won't let me (because apparently I don't have the necessary rep in that tag.)

    I also agree with merging them, I'll leave it a day or so and see what consensus we arrive on for the final tag

  • The community seems torn, or rather doesn't care which tag it's going to be. ;) I'd say just pick one of the two and change it. @iandotkelly

While I agree with the general idea of merging them all together, I would rather settle for as the umbrella term.

    Stack Overflow uses tags and redirects tag and tagging. So, I guess that sounds like a best practice. It's the same on Arqade. They don't have a retagging tag at all but they do have retag-request, which we don't (but apparently a request for that tag was declined).

    @iandotkelly community decision looks clear.

My suggestion:

Consolidate them all under , which I think best sums up what the tagged questions are about.
