Template without version number

I would suggest we should implement a version of this tag that could be used if the last relevant release is unknown. --opethfan 2014-09-28

??? Help:Tag itself: needs expanding, to cleanup, is obsolete, to merge and to delete ???

Does somebody know how to de-activate the categorizing function of the "Tags" on this page?--Pistazienfresser 16:58, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Not simple, if you use template as is. The only way would be to substitute them (permanent inclusion) and then remove categories , but then any change to templates will not show on this page automatically. Somebody will have to edit article and substitute them again. --Rajko m 00:50, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Portals/Articles that need update to 11.4 - tagging?

What is to do with portals/Articles need to be updated to the version openSUSE 11.4? Should there be an template/tag like Template:Update to 11.4 or just {{Update}}? The nearest to that would be Template:Cleanup but I would not rate that text to be appropriate.

Or just add the updated articles/portals to Category:11.4 and the not updated to Category:11.3?

As you can see, I created the template for you ;). I also started a new article: Help:Version related jobs I was already planning on this some time now, so now I started on it. If you find certain points/jobs we need to do now after the release of 11.4 just put it there, so we have a summary for the next version release. (So we don't have to find out again). Also this makes it easier for new contributors to jump in and understand what we are working on.

It may also help to use Category:11.3, Category:11.3 or in general [[Category:XX.X]]for the pages that are related to the actual version - that are probably the ones that should be updated or made new for new versions....and for example I have put all the versions of "In the press" I found in Category:In the press that may help also to add links to special-theme-categories like this to your how-to-do-a-wiki-update-around-new-release / Help:Version related jobs.
