[Forum] Add more tags for new topics

(Christophe Chevalier) #1

Currently, there is only the bindings tag available when creating new topics.

We could use more tags, that could grouped into categories

  • Operating system
    • linux
    • macos
    • freebsd
    • windows
  • Binding language
    • java,
    • python
    • go
    • node.js
    • swift
    • c#
    • malbolge
  • Versions of the database? Or should this be API versions?
    • 5.1
    • 5.2
    • 6.0

I don’t know if we need to add prefix for categories, like os_linux, lang_swift or ver_5.1. Maybe this is overkill.

I’d also suggest things like monitoring, operations, layer design, tooling.

These topics come up frequently among the people getting into the FoundationDB, so they probably deserve a category.

(Dave Lester) #3

Great suggestions. Anyone else have input?

I think this should be database version rather than API version given that most features (or bugs, but I like to stay positive) will be tracked with the database rather than API version other than, say, “oh, the API works like this starting at database version x.y (well, if you are using API version XY0 or newer)”. But everything else I don’t think should depend on the API version.

I do think that prefixes for categories is probably overkill, unless there are overloaded terms, but I can’t think of any off of the top of my head. (Maybe golang instead of go?)
