I just noticed that we have the (older, more well-established) tag as well as the (newer, used on only two questions) tag. I went to the tag and suggested the other as a synonym, so go vote it up and make it happen!

Before debate ensues about which should actually be the tag and which the synonym: our usual policy is to use the more common term within the wider community, and "OGL" is used overwhelmingly more than the full "Open Game License", just like "D&D 4e" gives us because it's used overwhelmingly instead of the longer version. That seems clear enough to me that I don't think it needs discussion, but it's possible there's a flaw in that reasoning.

As a side note, the tag wiki text in is excellent, so I replaced the tag wiki text in with it. Props to @MattThomason for that text!
