Today the crystallography appeared in Angular dependence of x-ray and neutron scattering factors. I thought we do not need this tag as we already have crystal-structure and I thought that we should rather extend the scope of this tag to include the procedure of obtaining such. I already proposed it as a synonym to the tag.
When I was about to edit the tag wiki, I found out, that we already have the x-ray-diffraction, which would be appropriate to the question.
However, my initial thought is still persistent and I think, that synonymising would do no harm. If we keep the x-ray tag, my proposed synonym would map to the wrong tag.
I wanted to retract my synonym proposal, but I did not find out how. I guess it has to be downvoted, to disappear or be removed by a mod. Since I made this mistake, I am apologising for the inconvenience.
I still would like to put it to a vote:
Should we merge the tags (and scopes) crystallography and x-ray-diffraction (and keep the latter as a synonym) or is there enough difference to keep them both alive?
