This is not an obvious issue at the time of launching this Q&A site, but how do you / we plan on dealing with ExpressionEngine version numbers?
For over a dozen years, nearly all of our customers have been in the Software industry, and in most cases, each has made this mistake when planning to launch product support portals. It then becomes a real challenge, when launching new major versions, that are so fundamentally different from previous versions.
Questions being asked right now, are obviously and most likely related to the current stable release of EE. So, answers are software version specific. Imagine if this site were launched during the EE 1.7.x life cycle, how confusing it would be to mix EE 1.x with EE 2.x questions.
I worry that without specifying the(major, not point release) version numbers, the content will get muddled over time, and good advise now could be bad advise later.
I wouldn't advocate requiring version number tags for each question, as the list of tags is already quite large, and the onus shouldn't be on the user to rambler to tag by version (should be the platform handling this).
So is there a way in StackExchange to create some sort of version subcategories/ subsections? Does anyone else see this as a potential issue down the line?
