When asking a question that touches upon the upcoming Ubuntu 14.10 version, I found that there's no tag, so I have created one.

Is it okay or should we only create a tag when the version is officially released? I think not, as I can well imagine people needing to seek answers before the version is officially released.

  • @hbdgaf I'm afraid it would be a chore to re-tag all the relevant questions at the moment of official release. Is that policy written up somewhere? – Nickolai Leschov Aug 20 '14 at 19:43

    it's policy to close them previous to that, so there's no need to retag. they should be closed and asked again later when they're on topic if the uestion persists. – RobotHumans Aug 20 '14 at 19:48

    14.10 isn't wholly of topic anyway, even now. We seem to bump into that myth every six months. – Oli Aug 20 '14 at 20:32
  • @Oli - fair enough, if you look at my posts on meta about beta release options, i'm on the "if you can answer it, then go for it" team. i just don't think there needs to be a taxonomy for "i hope you know what you're doing" objects – RobotHumans Aug 20 '14 at 20:55

    your 2nd comment to me is a reaon why tagging a question with a release number is not always smart. An error in 13.10 that is not related to it being EOL can help a 12.04 or 14.04 user. On the other side: it is soooooooo darn handy to sort the questions on a tag like 13.10 (or Mint) and close-vote the new created ones :D – Rinzwind Aug 23 '14 at 18:49

Let me put it this way:
