Logged into day to see the Organizer Badge for myself, but the question it is linked to gets a
Page Not Found: How should versioned jQuery tags be combined on stackoverflow?
The question was deleted.
Please see this question for further discussion.
By Kevin Hakanson (question body):
Since the Official repository of tag synonyms seems to the
product-x.y format, I would suggest merging into
jquery-1.4, but I wanted to open for discussion. Also, should this be added to the tag synonyms list?
By Nick Craver (answer):
I would recommend against merging the minor releases, there are issues in each release, for example a common question is about the
change event not bubbling in IE (causing
.live('change', func) breaks). This issue is specific to 1.4.1 and fixed in 1.4.2 (along with many event questions).
I would recommend mapping:
- jquery1.3 (32) -> jquery-1.3
- jquery1.3.2 (8) -> jquery-1.3.2
- jquery1.4 (18), jquery14 (2) -> jquery-1.4
- jquery1.4.1 (1) -> jquery-1.4.1
- jquery1.4.2 (8) -> jquery-1.4.2
Update: I moved the jquery1.x.x tags to jquery-1.x.x to at least normalize the formatting for now, there are still a number of jquery1.3 and jquery1.4 out there that need a bulk retag.
Comments on answer:
Why would we merge jquery14 with jquery1.4? I thought we wanted to keep major releases separate. – devinb Jul 19 at 18:50
@devinb - jQuery14 is 1.4...1.4 is the latest release, there's no jQuery 14 out there :) – Nick Craver Jul 19 at 18:53
I see your point about minor versions affecting the question, but doesn't this better fit in the question text and not the tag? – Kevin Hakanson Jul 25 at 3:17
@Kevin - I don't think so, my opinion again of course...when I see certain issues I would immediately recognize the issue as a known bug in that version, I would tag questions with those issues with that minor version as well...to indicate it's specific to jQuery-1.4.1 Often the issue doesn't apply to jQuery-1.4 overall, and most people being on the latest (of 1.4 users) wouldn't be affected. That being said, I may be one of 5 people max that this really helps, if it doesn't help anyone else to find answers then let's cleanup/combine them, and leave the minor versions out. – Nick Craver Jul 25 at 12:26
