Having found out in this question that is synonym to , I'd like to ask if that's intended behaviour? passwd refers to a tool; password should be a tag for questions that ask about passwords, password managers, password authentication, etc. They both have different descriptions and meanings; Sometimes you want to ask question that is specific to passwd tool, and sometimes your question refers to passwords, but not passwd. Plus, it's easier to navigate searching for passwd, when trying to solve related problem.


Well, it was intended by the user who suggested it and the others who voted on it, but it does seem wrong to me, so I removed the synonym. It renamed 45 times since January 2014 though, and those won't automatically change back, so there's potentially some posts in that time frame that should be tagged but aren't.
