I originally posted this question on Meta Stack Overflow. However, it was suggested that I post it here as well because I have not received an answer after over two weeks.
IBM Bluemix was recently rebranded as the IBM Cloud platform in this recent official announcement. We currently have the
ibm-bluemix tag that is used on most of the questions for the platform. As with any rebranding, it takes a while for everyone to get accustomed to it. We would like
ibm-cloud to be the master tag and
ibm-bluemix to be a synonym tag. As I understand it, if someone added the
ibm-bluemix tag to a question, it would then be automatically published as
ibm-cloud. However, before we make that official request, I have a few questions:
- If the change is made, how does that affect RSS feeds? If someone is following the
ibm-bluemixtag, will the
ibm-cloudtagged questions be included?
- When you use the SO API to pull tag metrics, how will the tag change affect it? If we begin querying on
ibm-cloudfor metrics, will the results continue to include questions tagged as
Please help as I do want to make a change that would be detrimental to the continued use of Stack Overflow.
