These two tags looks like duplicates to me:

  1. : 3 questions, no wiki
  2. : 1 question, good wiki

I think the general rule is to avoid abbreviations in tag names unless they are more established than the full name (e.g. ). I guess the simplest things to do would be to copy paste the tag wiki from #2 to #1, and retag the single question. Or what do you think?

  • Fully agree. Depending on how common the acronym is, it might make sense to make polp a synonym?

“POLP” is not a common abbreviation in my experience. I didn't recognize it in your question before I saw the expansion, whereas I'm familiar with the concept under its full name. So I don't see the value of keeping the synonym around. That one question (which had an even worse tag) should just be retagged.

Also, since the tag length limit has been raised, now fits. So I propose to rename the tag to the full name.

    I agree, and have made this change, but kept least-privilege as a synonym of the full name
