Tag synonym notifications

Seems if I am watching a tag and this tag is set as a synonym of another tag (which makes the other tag primary) I no longer receive email notifications for the tag.
Is this by intention or a bug?

I think you’d want to watch the “official” tag not the synonym? :thinking:

Yes, sure, but if I’m an ordinary user I might not know:

  • that the tag was made a synonym (and is not official any more)
  • that I need to start watching the new tag instead
