People inadvertently choose the tag (an email client) instead of . See the recent question How to create Alpine live-USB without using `dd`?.

I suggest to remove the tag alpine and replace it with alpine-mail or another variation. There is a relevant discussion in https://unix.meta.stackexchange.com/q/4747/.

I cleaned up the tag assignments, so all questions are now about the email client and all questions have only that tag. I added clarification to the wiki excerpt (pending review), but concur that the tag should be renamed , consistent with how it was handled on the Unix & Linux site.


As the tags have effectively been cleaned up and split by fixer1234 I have gone ahead and merged into

Creating a synonym didn't seem relevant here, neither mail nor Linux are popular enough to be considered "primary".
