My second concern, the gold looking like "less" than the silver could be addressed by given the root more edges: [svg] [source] Now they have equally many edges, and gold clearly is the root. (I ...

About the tag [computational-complexity]

As far as I know, complexity-theory is a synonym. If you agree, please upvote for mapping complexity-theory ← computational-complexity here.

Do we need tags [dfa] and [nfa]?

I think finite-automata is specific enough, even for questions that aim towards getting a DFA. That is because determinism is (usually) not the issue; every NFA can be algorithmically converted into a ...

Do we need both cluster and clustering tags?

Cluster is allocation unit, coupled together computers or parallel file system. 34 questions use it, none properly. Moreover using definitions I know, properly tagged question would be off-topic. ...

About the tag graph-algorithms

Not that this really adds a lot, but it at least gives a place for people to vote in favour of discarding graph-algorithms and using algorithms + graphs. My perspective is that this is the more ...

Tag rename (rice)

I'd suggest "rice-theorem". It would be easily found by automatch, and "rices" is not a word (in this context).

Should we merge "graphs" with "graph-theory"?

What to do about [tag:kernel] with multiple meanings

I recommend introducing the two tags os-kernel and kernel-functions, and then introducing a tag synonym kernel -> os-kernel. I do not think we need a special tag for "kernel" in the context of ...

Why is there a change in the privilege amounts needed for most actions?

There was a mishap upstream. All seems to be good again. Note that once we graduate beta (which seems to be in preparation) privileges will go up in rep requirements. Discussing whether this makes ...

tags: variable-binding and scoping

I don't get the tag scoping either, variable-binding is fine for that question. I'm not convinced we need scoping at all and I'd prefer variable-scope if we introduce a synonym. The proper tag name ...

Can program-verification be made a synonym of software-verification?

This fell through the cracks. Nobody ever made the argument that they should be different, I know the topic and I can't spot any difference as to how these tags are used, so I've merged them.
