Do we really need a separate tag for all the different versions of NetBeans?

We currently have (with the number of questions):

What should we do about these tags? Retag them all to and clean up the crap questions while we are at it?

I'm not a netbeans guy but my colleagues had issues always after upgrading the version of netbeans. So when the software changes rapidly, some versioning in tag would be legitimate. Such as with and .

But I think that those tags are too fragmented. Creating tag for each minor version makes it less probable that the persons browsing by tags will find such specific tag. So I suggest leaving tags for major versions (, ) for now. If after a few months it will be still too fragmented, the tag merge discussion can be raised again.
