All the posts do seem to be recommendations, except for List installed packages in Fedora. I dropped the tag from that one and merged :

updating post history, 8 rows affected
updating posts, 7 rows affected
updating PostTags associations, 7 rows affected
removing/renaming old tag, 1 rows affected
updating count for master tag, 1 rows affected
merge of [software-rec] and [software] complete!

I'm not sure if it should be a synonym or not, so I didn't make one for now
