I found a lot of topics on SO where tags are only for a specific version, for example: ruby-ob-rails3.

I ignore a few tags, including ruby-ob-rails. Should I add a non-specific tag for these topics?

If you want to ignore all RoR tags, you can use a wildcard in the ignored tag to ignore all tags that start with [ruby-on-rails].

Try this: ruby-on-rails*.

Far as editing the questions to add a more generic tag goes... I don't think it really matters. I probably wouldn't - it'd be a neverending battle to get every question that needs it tagged appropriately.

I didn't know that this also works, really nice, thanks! – Sn0opy Nov 6 '11 at 15:56
