As discussed here, aliasing would make sense.

Should and could someone with enough reputation make that alias?


I've proposed the wsl alias for the tag. Looks like there's only 13 users that qualify for voting on the alias at the moment (myself not included), so we'll need to get lucky or be patient :)

    It's got a score of 2 (out of 4) right now.

    we might want to improve that amount of potential voters by making sure questions are tagged, but that's something we should do for new questions anyway. Nov 23 at 12:41
  • Can't mods create synonyms without going through the voting process?

  • @muru is there a need for haste?

  • @Kusalananda realistically, how fast do tag synonyms get created? I'm thinking somewhere on around "never", since we need an intersection of people (a) that have the voting rights, (b) either know a synonym has been proposed or go to the tag page and find out and (c) actually do that voting too.

    I was considering featuring this post as a way to get more main-site visibility. I hesitate to mod-vote on an alias, since I don't want to speak for the community. If the natural voting doesn't get there, I'd consider "enough" positive voting on these posts (and lack of opposition) to be an indication that the community thinks it's a good idea, and hammer the alias in.

  • I'd vote for it if i could, because i think the synonym is a good idea - even though I've never answered a WSL-only question and probably never will (unless it's also tagged with, or about, bash or sed or awk or something).
