We should combine the [vi] and the [vim] tags.

From the [vi] tag wiki:

Questions about the text editor "vi" or "vim"

I am not sure whether to keep the [vi] tag or the [vim] tag, but I don't think there is a reason to keep two separate tags.

vi and vim are two different applications that share the same name.

By default, Ubuntu ships with vim-tiny, which does not have the same full feature set of true vim.

The tags are similar, yes, but they are not synonyms. Questions about vi very much do apply to vim as well, but questions about vim do not apply to vi.
