We have folks submitting under tags PowerShell, PowerShell-v1.0 and PowerShell-v2.0. I think it would make the most sense to just have PowerShell-v* refer to the base PowerShell tag wiki. It could include sections discussing differences between 1.0 and 2.0. However I don't know if this is possible. If it is possible, how do you go about doing it?

Could you just add a link? – mmyers Aug 26 '10 at 19:51
Sure. I thought that there might be some way to specify that the tags were synonymous though and that clicking on the synonym would just take you to the base level tag's wiki page. – Keith Hill Aug 26 '10 at 20:09
Well, if the tags were synonymous you would mark them as synonymous, but you mean the tag wikis should be identical – Michael Mrozek Aug 26 '10 at 20:44
Well PowerShell and PowerShell-v1.0 are pretty much synonymous. PowerShell-v2.0 has new features but shares a lot of the same wiki information ie the base level stuff except for the new 2.0 features. I was thinking that the wiki for PowerShell-v1.0 should just be the same wiki the PowerShell tag has. But I've put in a link on that wiki which is an OK way to go. – Keith Hill Aug 26 '10 at 21:04

When I wrote the initial versions of the [make] and [makefile] tag wikis I only put a link in the [makefile] wiki (pointing to the [make] wiki).

'Cause I'm lazy and really prefer [make].

It appears that is the only mechanism to provide a common wiki for similar (even synonymous) tags. – Keith Hill Aug 26 '10 at 21:52
