Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I don't have the credit to suggest this, but it's a no-brainer: Make a synonym of .

Is there a reason that you need ruby-on-rails, ruby-on-rails-3, and ruby-on-rails-3.1? 144 questions are tagged with all three. – Kevin Vermeer Oct 5 '11 at 20:11
There are questions that are specific to specific versions, which is why all three tags are useful. There are people who can answer a ruby-on-rails-3.1 question but who are only subscribed to the ruby-on-rails tag, which is why it is advantageous to tag a question with both. I agree that it's messy, but this is what creates that behavior. – John Bachir Oct 5 '11 at 20:22
