Should we be using SDL in other product names for tagging

For example: sdl-media-manager or media-manager, sdl-smart-target or smart-target

My personal feeling is we should use synonyms to handle both cases? What does everyone think.

Synonyms would be the best to make sure we handle both indeed.

I think SDL marketing would like us to use SDL in the names, but I think most of the community members would prefer shorter tags and omit SDL.

    +1. Short names worked on StackOverflow. We can even go shorter for versions (e.g. 2009 for SDL Tridion 2009). I have seen newer customers confuse product with company name and call Tridion simply SDL. So +1 to synonyms along with using the correct names in actual questions and tag descriptions.

  • Definitely In with droppi g the SDL bit from the tags but I do wonder a little bit if shortening Tridon 2011 to just 2011 is the correct thing to do. What happens if we do that and 6 weeks from now we have Tridion 2013 and User Experiance Manager 2013, what would the tag 2013 be related to othat case? Commented Feb 20, 2013 at 23:57

    I would say product + version without SDL to avoid confusion, where the suite is Tridion so "Tridion 2011", "SmartTarget 2011 SP2", "Media Manager 2.3" Commented Feb 21, 2013 at 7:41
