I was just about to post this myself, but it appears this is already an open issue.

A number of questions are tagged with both, and there seems to be no clear distinction between the two. The descriptions for both of them are basically the same too.

I would propose that they both be merged into . "Provisional" alone may be a little vague, as at first blush it could refer to provisional rights or something.

  • You should be able to suggest the synonym: >Users with more than 1250 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag, can suggest tag synonyms. Users with a total answer score (total upvotes minus total downvotes) of 5 or more on the tag, can vote for tag synonyms. Suggestions will be automatically approved when they reach a score of 4, and automatically deleted when they reach a score of -2. // Click on the tag and then on synonyms ;) – DonQuiKong Mar 1 '17 at 13:50
