I think it's better to rename to . It seems like better english usage to me.

  • Either way, they should be synonyms. The same goes for umount and unmounting (and perhaps unmount, currently unused); the displayed name should not be umount because its meaning is less clear than the English words. Feb 9, 2011 at 23:09

I disagree, since the actual unix command for this is "mount", and it seems useful to have the tag match the command.

  • What of less standard utilities like pmount? Should I add a tag for it, or in their case, should I stick to [mounting]?

    If it's concerning a specific utility, my opinion is we should have a tag for that utility... as well as the more generic [mount, mounting] tag (: Not sure what others feel though. Guess I should hang out in meta more!

  • I think mounting is silly. stick to mount, I'm ok with tags for specific utilities. anything else can just be filesystems and kernel. Feb 27, 2011 at 11:48
