Today, 77 questions were retagged to ember-old-router. There is no tag wiki.
There is nothing inside ember-router, the previous tag these questions held, to suggest that it is "new" or that there is a previous iteration of it that deserves or requires its own tag. There is nothing in the Ember.Router API guide that suggests that there is a previous iteration that deserves or requires different tagging, or how to identify it.
In fact, there is only mention of a new router anywhere on the internet, not an old router. This question, for example, mentions the changes. In fact, it points at a different section of the manual that explains the new way of doing things. Apparently they haven't even updated the API guide. Thanks, Ember.js.
We have three problems now:
- Ember.js has completely changed their router API in a backwards incompatable way. They have done so in a pre-1.0 version, which makes using version-specific tags a bit sticky. This makes classifying router questions here on SO rather irritating to say the least.
- The new tag name sucks and is effectively undiscoverable. How do I know whem I'm using the "old" router? Where was the tag wiki? If this was important enough to retag over half of the applicable questions under an old tag, why wasn't at least an excerpt made?
- The mass retagging seems to have been done without pinging Meta for sanity. Why was a tag for the "old" router created instead of one for the "new" router?
I'd like to:
Get ahold of the retagger and ask for clarification. Pinged.
- Discuss alternative ways to classify the two types of router question, and
- Nuke the new tag in favor of something more clear.
