Some (game engine) questions are being accidentally tagged as (Microsoft dependency injection container).

Can we rename to , and create a tag synonym for and as the Stack Overflow site has done?

See the relevant Stack Overflow meta post.

(There weren't too many questions tagged as unity to date, so I've just edited about 10-15 posts that were incorrectly categorized as to .)

I think this is a good suggestion. I would support it, but let's give it a few days to garner support in meta.

I would propose that we follow the convention that StackOverflow has taken like you suggested:

  1. create unity-container tag just like SO's.
  2. Audit the current questions again to ensure that no posts remain.
  3. merge all remaining posts in in to
  4. create alias from in to

By sheer volumes it makes sense to alias the -> as has over 140 posts, but would have only 14.

  • \$\begingroup\$ No, just making a comment, don't see too many meta discussions here with such response in a short amount of time. I'm not advocating it be done now. \$\endgroup\$ Commented May 7, 2018 at 5:19

    \$\begingroup\$ There has been no disagreement, and lots of support, so I have completed the merge/synonym \$\endgroup\$
