Now that Mozilla is rolling out Firefox releases so quickly, does it really pay to keep creating separate tags for each new version? We currently have tags for firefox 3-6 including several incremental tags of three.
I'm still debating whether the synonym should exist at all - we have firefox as the generic tag for all Firefox versions, while the version-specific tags can still remain & be applied for questions having problems with specific versions.
Also, going forward Firefox more or less has decided to dump the version tag - so till people embrace the no-version-Firefox much like they have embraced Chrome, I don't think the synonym mapping would be required.
This is done
Unless its something specific to an older version, or UI related (since ff4+ does have a significantly different UI). On the short run, it makes sense to me to merge all of 3x family tags up - since its going to be updated and some people will be stick with it support ends, or their distro upgrades and keep everything else together, and apply the generic firefox tag for anything at all.
I'd also note FF has considered dropping user-facing version numbers - which would decide this for us.
Hmm. For now I suggest not having Firefox-4, Firefox-5, Firefox-6 version tags and just keep them all as perhaps.. something that indicates "new firefox"?
Can we make the generic firefox tag work in this case for now, until Mozilla decides if they're going fully Chrome-infinite-version?
