Related to my previous question on this subject, it seems we have another synonym of and : . These tags are evidently being used for the same thing: the most recent question on is "How to fix a TI99/4a membrane keyboard?" and the most recent question on is "How do I replace a ZX Spectrum 48k keyboard membrane?".

I propose that be made a synonym of .

    The only difference that I can see between them is that restoration implies that there hasn't been maintenance for a while, whereas maintenance is more general. However, they are being used interchangeably. – wizzwizz4 Sep 10 '16 at 17:32

I agree with your comment that restoration of derelict equipment is different to maintenance of running equipment.

I suggest making that clearer in the tag wikis and keeping an eye on it for a while.

    Ok. I'll re-visit this in a few months to see if the ambiguity becomes more than 1 question in size. – wizzwizz4 Sep 11 '16 at 18:03
  • The ambiguity is now larger (search query) although probably not significant enough to call for a synonymisation. – wizzwizz4 Jan 4 '17 at 19:00
