Best practice for TAG naming convention
« on: February 01, 2024, 09:56:23 pm »
Hello,

I wonder if the best naming convention for tags is to use the 2 colons and have something like:
<tag_group>::<tag_name> for example:

metrics::suitability

Is that a good approach or there is a better one?

Thanks!

I wouldn't recommend it.

The "::" is already used to indicate the fully qualified name of things like stereotype.
I'm pretty sure that at some point you'll bump into an issue because of this.
I would use an underscore, of any other character for that matter if you really want to include the group name in the tagname.
