Generally, our device-specific tags follow the pattern <manufacturer>-<device>, which is the case for all Motorola devices as well – with the exception of the Moto-X.

Shouldn't we …

  1. Rename to motorola-moto-x to match that pattern
  2. optionally, have a moto-x synonym pointing to the renamed tag?

PS: Same for and plus and it seems.

  • I would agree but "Moto X" is a family now: 1st Gen, and now the 2nd Gen. So [motorola-moto-x] would really be device specific to 1st Gen, leaving the younger 2nd Gen down the path. – Firelord Jul 7 '15 at 11:42
  • Not sure whether they all need separate tags (we have other examples with "one tag for a family", see e.g. the nexus* tags). But of course, an option would be, while being on it, to create a "group" of tags using the pattern motorola-moto-x-?gen or motorola-moto-x-???? (so either by "gen" or by "year") – Izzy Jul 7 '15 at 11:50
  • I thought we did have -x# tags. I'll have to look when I'm not on mobile. – Matthew Read Jul 7 '15 at 14:41
  • @MatthewRead We definitely have not, I've checked that (and just now re-checked). Typing moto-x in the search box on the tags page gives only one result: moto-x itself. – Izzy Jul 7 '15 at 16:00

    I'm indifferent as to how we handle the 1st/2nd generation thing, but motorola-moto-x would at least be consistent with our other tags, even if we intended it to cover the whole "family". – eldarerathis Jul 14 '15 at 14:29

    @eldarerathis I've just added the moto-e to this list, same thing (Firelord just pointed that out on chat). Time for some action, maybe? As for your "generation issue": we don't have that currently AFAIK, so fixing the tag doesn't touch this issue – which can be dealt with separately if we see the need. – Izzy Aug 7 '15 at 7:55
