I know it's not a good question title...
I'd like to have a question and short answer here on meta.SF that explains what - if anything - people can or should do to clean up tags. I've seen blog posts about tag synonyms and wikis and I've seen Q&A here about cleaning up certain tags, but I've never seen a fairly short guide to "what should a normal user do to help clean up?"
A recent question related to HP-UX and I noticed that both hp-ux and hpux tags were in use on various questions. hp-ux was more common and is more correct, so I changed all the hpux tags to hp-ux and edited many of the questions to read hp-ux instead of hp ux or hp/ux.
was it worth doing this or if it would've been better to just post here and let a mod do it in bulk?
how does a person set up a tag synonym?
