A while ago I suggested a tag. The idea seemed to be agreed with, but it was decided to merge it with the existing tag.

I agree that the tags overlap to the point of being the same thing and should be one tag, however I think would be a better name, simply because seems like less widely used terminology when referring to pre-compiled distributed software, and questions about actually building blender are considered off-topic here.

Should this be changed?
And if so, how can it be changed? Will we need a moderator to do some magic?

  • $\begingroup$ @DantheMan Since it seems no one objects, do you know how to do the actual renaming? Do you have some mod power or do we have to create a new tag and then synonymize it? $\endgroup$

I'm definitely in full support of this tag change.
How will we define Versions? What will the tag be used for?

    $\begingroup$ How about "Use this tag for questions involving specific versions of blender"? $\endgroup$

I support this move. The only issue would be if there are "official" builds (like say, a feature branch) that we allow questions for (do we?) - as these might not be best tagged with .
