Some Japanese Go terms, such as joseki, don't have an English equivalent. Fuseki, on the other hand, is commonly translated just as "opening". We have a widely used tag with a nice, general tag wiki. At least a couple Go questions are tagged with "openings", when they could just as well be tagged "fuseki". Especially for the sake of new members looking for Go questions, I think searching for "fuseki" should return results, but should Go questions prefer "fuseki" to "openings", or should they be synonymized?

I use fuseki and opening exchangeably in practice. http://senseis.xmp.net/?Fuseki supports their equivalence.

Since it is possible to search for questions tagged both go and openings, there is probably no need to keep separate tags.

If there is agreement, I'll merge the tags.
