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. – Foo Bar Feb 21 '13 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. – Fabian Blechschmidt Feb 21 '13 at 14:42
  • Your point is clear. Now the question is under what circumstances one may want to pull all 1.3 questions? – Foo Bar Feb 23 '13 at 21:26
  • good question :) no idea – Fabian Blechschmidt Feb 23 '13 at 23:55
  • in this case my way of tagging works better. because at least the purpose is clear :-) – Foo Bar Feb 24 '13 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 – barbazul Mar 7 '13 at 18:04
  • 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? – Foo Bar Mar 8 '13 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? – barbazul Mar 8 '13 at 14:43
  • never. the point of full tag is to show the version of Magento so no additional questions will be asked. – Foo Bar Mar 9 '13 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 – barbazul Mar 11 '13 at 14:41
  • 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. – Chris K May 24 '13 at 6:38
