Please could we have the [.bashrc] tag made a synonym of [bash]. Statistics:

It is not needed.
It's true that we don't need a separate tag .bashrc. That tag is hardly used (surely some question has at some point in its life had that tag, since that's how tags are created).
But the reason we don't need it is that we have bashrc, which is extensively used. Currently it has 408 questions.
A possible, but not very good, argument for keeping a separate .bashrc tag would be that it refers to the
.bashrc files in people's home directories and
/etc/skel, and not to
/bash/bashrc. I say this is not a very good argument because:
I do believe that bashrc without the dot is useful and should continue to exist separately from bash, which is a hugely broader topic. I think neither .bashrc nor bashrc should be synonymized to bash.
"Failed to propose synonym: The suggested tag must exist in the system before suggesting it as a synonym!"
I suppose a moderator could do it, but unless the tag comes back (i.e., unless people start tagging questions with it again), this is probably unnecessary.
