Currently there are some tags ce-1.7, ce-1.7.22, ee-1.12 and so on.

I think it would make sense to limit this to the second-point releases as the last-point releases (such as 1.7.0.2) usually do not change so much.

I think tagging is good, and why not have a tag for ce-1.7.0.2 and one for ce-1.7 and if you use 1.7.0.2 just use both :)

  • because if you specify a ce-1.3 tag people will ask you for a clarification. because different versions of 1.3.x.x (and 1.4.x.x also) have significant changes. Feb 21, 2013 at 14:35
  • Yes, but the option to see all 1.3 questions AND to see all 1.3.0.4 (whatever) is good. and it is not much work while adding a question. Feb 21, 2013 at 14:42
  • Your point is clear. Now the question is under what circumstances one may want to pull all 1.3 questions? Feb 23, 2013 at 21:26
  • good question :) no idea Feb 23, 2013 at 23:55
  • in this case my way of tagging works better. because at least the purpose is clear :-) Feb 24, 2013 at 9:36

I personally prefer to have a full version in a tag. It removes any additional questions for a version clarification.

I'd go with only the edition (community or enterprise) and then only the first 2 values of the release.

i.e. ce-1.7

@Tim has a point in 1.3.x.x and 1.4.x.x but those are only exceptions to the general rule.

And I don't dare say those are obsolete versions but they are becoming rarer

    I think a swamp of tags would not be beneficial to find stuff and could potentially lead to a lot of repetition of questions

  • As I already told to Fabian .. Your point is clear. Now the question is under what circumstances one may want to pull let's say all 1.3 questions? Mar 8, 2013 at 12:29

    Back at you: Under what circumstances one might want to pull all 1.7.0.1 questions and leave out all 1.7.0.2 and 1.7.0.0 ones?

  • never. the point of full tag is to show the version of Magento so no additional questions will be asked. Mar 9, 2013 at 11:40
  • Well I think the version question would not be asked on every individual post, but the same question would be asked for each individual version. "Ho do I do X? 1.7.0.2", "Ho do I do X? 1.7.0.1", "Ho do I do X? 1.7.0.0", etc

  • People obsess with all the dots because the bruhaha around 1.4.2 or 1.4.3 or whatever it was when the magento-verse passed too close to a dwarf star and altered course forever. 1.7 is 1.7 and that's about all that's needed since 1.5. A better tag would be to highlight BIG and dangerous changes between versions; major or minor.
