Right now, the tag refers specifically to "questions regarding the Soyuz manned spacecraft"; it doesn't include questions about the Soyuz launcher. Should we create separate tags for the Soyuz spacecraft and the Soyuz launcher, or should we edit the description of to include both?

Sample questions about the Soyuz launcher:

  • $\begingroup$ I went ahead and executed the change in Suggestion #1 steps 1-2. I started working on retagging questions that needed soyuz-launcher, but I didn't have time to finish. Others may want to keep looking through soyuz-spacecraft to see if any other retags are needed, and someone may want to write up the description and/or wiki for soyuz-launcher. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Feb 27 '17 at 20:56

    $\begingroup$ I went through everything with the soyuz-spacecraft tag and retagged them as needed. $\endgroup$ – DylanSp Feb 27 '17 at 21:24

  • $\begingroup$ Do we have an R-7 tag? Or Semyorka tag? If we did, those who are familiar with the Russian families of rockets will know to use if for Soyuz launcher. :-) $\endgroup$ – DrZ214 Mar 4 '17 at 18:19

Suggestion #1:

  1. Create a tag and a tag.

  2. Merge and synonymize into .

  3. Retag some questions as as necessary.

I think should be synonymous to because that is its most frequent use case. If someone is intending to tag a Soyuz launcher question, they or an editor should notice that , when it pops up, is the wrong tag.

  • $\begingroup$ Marking this accepted, since the consensus seems clear. $\endgroup$ – DylanSp Feb 27 '17 at 21:12

Suggestion #2:

Redefine to include both the spacecraft and launcher, since they are so closely related.

  • $\begingroup$ This seems likely to lead to more confusion, not less, which would be unfortunate. $\endgroup$ – Nathan Tuggy Feb 23 '17 at 21:28
  • $\begingroup$ @NathanTuggy I agree $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Feb 23 '17 at 21:29
