Synonymous keywords

The problem with synonymous keywords is they cause trouble searching in the Issue Tracker. For example, you might search for "Wizard," but some issue reports use them "AutoPilot" instead. One possibile consequence is duplicate reports.

Possible solution

Should issues be standardized on official terminology?
