I recently created the tag because I thought it was missing. Then I discovered the tag. How to deal with these two?

They are sort of the same thing (at least they have the same Wikipedia page), so one tag should be enough. But since GUID is (a) not used as often, and (b) a Microsoft thing, I wouldn't want to be the main tag.

Could we make a synonym of ? Or any better ideas?

  • The [guid] tag is gone. Seems like there has been a retagging effort to move to [uuid]. No synonym though, but I don't think it's really needed. I consider this case closed.

I'm all for your suggestion. They are functionally identical.
