I was doing some reviews on close votes, when I came to this question.
It has been proposed as a dupe of Comment posting issue As you can see, the original proposed question was initially posted for a different version of the app the bug reports referees to, then was updated to pinpoint that the bug is still present in the more recent versions.
This got me thinking: suppose we have two different bug reports questions, one for an old version of an Official Stack Exchange application and one for the new one. What is the current preferred way to manage this?
I think it should be enough to close the newer question (that points to the newer version) as a dupe and edit the old one to point out that the bug is still replicable in version x.y.z of the app... Can we use this approach or there is any specific reason we should prefer to keep the newer question open and close the older one (for example, something tied to the way bugs are tracked internally from the staff)? Are both approach the same for the Stack Exchange developer team or there is a better one?
Any official answer from the staff will be greatly appreciated, but I am open at any reasoning anyone may bring up.
