Should we merge all codename tags with the version tags? Already there are tags like lucid and 10.04 which are identical.
Personally, I hope that over time the Tag Synonyms feature on the Info pages will take care of this for us and you'll be able to tag/search with
lucid-lynx and these will be treated as equivalent.
It's early days for that feature, so I see where you're coming from.
On the parent site there are (at this moment) 37 questions tagged with 10.04 and 9 questions tagged with lucid. Of the 37 questions tagged with 10.04, 5 are also tagged lucid and 1 is also tagged lucid-lynx.
It looks like thus far 10.04 is the popular choice and I see also the top voted answer to this related question.
I think it would make sense for the other two to be suggested as synonyms for 10.04. However, that decision is in the hands of the +1000 users (currently 7) or the moderators (I think).
I think so, although for readability I think that we should give preference to the codename (excluding the animal). For example:
- lucid <= 10.04
- lucid <= lucid-lynx
