I'm wondering what the process should be for guiding the tag people should be using for the next version of SQL Server. With CTP3 now out in the public's hands, I expect StackOverflow, ServerFault and others to see some increased volumes around this version.
Currently most of the questions I see are tagged "denali" or "sql-server-2011."
I'm not sure it's a great idea to perpetuate the code-name, since that will not be the marketing name. Similarly we do not tag questions about SQL Server 2005 "yukon", SQL Server 2008 "katmai" or SQL Server 2008 R2 "killimanjaro."
And it is pretty clear given that no TPC results have been published yet that the release of the next version of SQL Server is more than 6 months out. Even if it were less and it does magically release this year, it would be highly unlikely to be named SQL Server 2011, simply because it would be "last year" almost immediately after release.
So, just curious how the tags develop, and what kind of guidance or influence the site provides to users other than just going in and re-tagging questions and suggesting changes manually.
EDIT at the PASS Summit keynote this morning, the official name for "Denali" was announced : SQL Server 2012. Not sure exactly how this changes the existing tags and migrations, but I suspect sql-server-2012 makes the most sense. As recently suggested on dba.stackexchange.com, denali should be a synonym and sql-server-2011 should be renamed...
