What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

There are two tags and on SO. I suggest to make a synonym for .


There are also a lot of another xcode tags such as , , , e.g. Some of them are very rarely used, but I not sure that all of them should have the same synonym.

+1 that should be made a synonym of .

I don't think all of the versions should be synonymized, because Xcode can change substantially between major versions. Witness, for example, the difference between Xcode 3 and Xcode 4. Even Xcode 4.2 is different from 4.1 because of the iOS 5-specific things that were added (support for Storyboards, for example).

However, tags like aren't very worthwhile, and I'd recommend that we only have tags for the major feature releases: , , , etc. Minor versions such as should be collapsed into their parent version tag of .
