When the original Q&A transpired I was expecting the differences between ArcGIS Pro versions 1.x and 2.0 to be far greater. They are certainly significant, and I do encourage users to upgrade to 2.0 sooner rather than later to take advantage of them. However, I think the case for maintaining two version tags within ArcGIS Pro is much weaker than expected.
Consequently, I think that we should:
- Rename arcgis-pro-1 back to arcgis-pro, which is easily done via
swap in the moderator tool for managing Tag Synonyms
- Merge arcgis-pro-2 into arcgis-pro, which is easily done by a moderator
I know that this is the opposite of what I proposed and implemented in the earlier Q&A but now we have the benefit of seeing another major release of ArcGIS Pro for the first time, and are thus in a much better position to judge the benefits of those two alternatives.
I think more benefit will accrue to our ArcGIS Pro users if all non-SDK ArcGIS Pro Q&As (at least those tagged correctly) have this one tag.
This more or less mirrors the situation for the older ArcGIS Desktop 10.x architecture where all non-developer ArcGIS Desktop Q&As (at least those tagged correctly) have one key tag of arcgis-desktop.
With only 264 non-SDK ArcGIS Pro questions asked so far I think it is better to make the switch now rather than later.
