Every day I have been retagging 6-10 new Lion posts to OSX-10.7, as I think it's better to have a single tag rather than two that mean the same thing.
The numbered versions for Mac OS X tags do not appear to be that popular:
The corresponding cat names, however, are:
- leopard = 150 questions
- snow-leopard = 784 questions
- lion = 5 questions, but it's been actively neutered by Mystere Man
I think we should stick with the cat names.
Regardless, some cleanup/consistency is needed here. I propose either we stick with the cat names as-is or make those synonyms for osx-leopard, osx-snow-leopard, osx-lion. Version numbers aren't what Apple or the public at large uses to refer to a version of OS X.
I've got no problem with setting up suitable synonyms, but given that Apple are referring to their own operating system as 'OS X Lion' rather than '10.7' (http://www.apple.com/macosx/) I have to respectfully suggest that your current choice of preferred synonym is incorrect.
