There is a tag for which has 40 questions and a description, and a tag for , which has 15 questions and no description.

Since the first question with glfw3, there seems to have been more questions tagged with glfw than with glfw3.

I'm not familiar enough with the library to argue that we need, or that we don't need the tag glfw3.

However, since there is not a lot of questions that are tagged with that and users seem to prefer glfw, so I would think that an expert browsing the questions wouldn't mind that much browsing 'only' questions with the tag glfw.

Should we keep the distinction or should we make glfw3 a synonym of glfw?

I think we should make glfw3 a synonym of glfw because volume of questions is not big enough for it to matter.
