I coded basic tag analyzer that pulls tags and their counts from API and compiles a list.

If anyone wants to improve my code or help with tag organizations (actively or by pointing out tags that need attention, whatever your rep is :) - feel free to. This is going slowly as my time and mood allow...

These combinations could be merged / unified or need some diamond attention imho:

<menu> / <menus>
<custom> / <customization> / <customize>
<debug> / <debugging>
<custom-post-type> / <custom-post-types>
<error> / <errors>
<function> / <functions>
<memory> / <memory-issues>
<license> / <licensing>
<upload> / <uploads>

<url-rewriting> / <rewrite-rules> not sure, left alone for now.
<wordpres 3.x.x> / <version-x> don't start me on this...
<i18n> / <multi-language> / <translation> tricky nuances, left alone for now
<loading-time> / <performance> different things
<apply-filters> / <add-filter> / <filters> different things
<front-page> / <home-page> different things
<domain> / <domain-mapping> different things

Just the first impression. Nice little script anyway. And educative for me too.
(getting data from SE API looks much easier then I have expected)

  • Nice list! You can follow the status at the tag synonym page, but maybe only if you have enough rep?

  • I'd argue that <domain> and <domain-mapping> are two different topics ... the same with <front-page> and <home-page> ... but the rest looks good to me.

  • I tried to create a synonym <wordpress-3.0> to <version-3.0> but I did it backwards. Is there anyway to delete my suggestion or just wait till it gets voted down?

  • @Chris_O deleted, I am waiting on that mess until we get final say form higher powers if we can get wordpress-x banned.
