# RETAG: cs.ds.data-structures to ds.data-structures-algorithms

This is a proposal to

• retag cs.ds.data-structures as ds.data-structures-algorithms
• rename algorithms as a tag synonym of ds.data-structures-algorithms

as an aside, maybe this should be the template for future retagging requests.

Update: Two tag synonyms have been created: ds.data-structures $\leftarrow$ cs.ds.data-structures, and ds.algorithms $\leftarrow$ algorithms. Nothing has been merged YET, but that can also be done to rewrite history entirely.

If we believe Wirth when he says that data structures + algorithms = programs, shouldn't we retag it ds.programs? – Charles Stewart Sep 5 '10 at 10:27
Is this proposal completed? I do not see the [ds.data-structures-algorithms] tag yet. – Tsuyoshi Ito Sep 6 '10 at 14:05
Or is the proposal modified? In that case, I appreciate if you append to the post what has been actually done. – Tsuyoshi Ito Sep 6 '10 at 14:17
apologies. I'll amend the post accordingly – Suresh Venkat Sep 6 '10 at 15:30
@Suresh: Thanks! – Tsuyoshi Ito Sep 6 '10 at 16:34
It might be good to manually check questions with the old cs.ds.data-structures tag; some of those need to be retagged with ds.algorithms and some of them with ds.data-structures. – Jukka Suomela Sep 6 '10 at 17:27
You could also create another synonym: ds.data-structures <- data-structures. I think these can be safely merged. – Jukka Suomela Sep 6 '10 at 17:27
