As you may know, FME underwent a rebranding exercise recently. I've made a few suggested edits for tags, but I don't think I have the reputation to sort out synonyms properly. I'm also not sure which way around synonyms ought to point.

For the rebranding:

  • FME Desktop became FME Form
  • FME Server became FME Flow
  • FME Cloud became FME Flow Hosted

Right now, the FME tags on the site are:

  • fme
  • fme-transformer
  • fme-server
  • fmeobjects
  • fme-cloud
  • fme-form
  • fme-flow
  • fme-desktop
  • fme-workbench

I just created the fme-form and fme-flow tags.

So, would fme-desktop become a synonym for fme-form, or should it be the other way around? And the same question for fme-server becoming a synonym for fme-flow, and fme-cloud for fme-flow-hosted.

To be honest, some of those tags aren't particularly useful - for example, fme-workbench - and we could maybe delete that one?

I know there are already some synonyms, and I'm not sure if they are helpful or not.

You have followed our Guidelines for proposing tag synonyms, which lead me to think that we should use moderator tools to implement this quickly.

I propose that we do the following as soon as community consensus is clear:

  1. Merge as a synonym of
  2. Merge as a synonym of
  3. Merge as a synonym of

Once that has been done, and/or if additional proposals are made, we can proceed to deal with any other existing FME tags that need attention.
