Re: release tagging ... to v or not to v

Zach Robinson

This was killing me the other day on cf-deployment.  I really prefer to exclude the 'v'.  It doesn't seem to add anything.

I share Andrew's peeve.
For the docs, we state that all version numbers should be prefaced with the lowercase "v".

Hi All,
One pet peeve of mine is the inconsistency of version tagging in the community github repos.  I think by looking it's about 50/50 whether there is a "v" or no "v" in the tag for each new release version.
Would it be possible to settle on some sort of standard?  Can we all use a "v" or all not use a "v" (I have no preference).  But when trying to write scripts that pull information from the repos it would be much easier if I didn't need a big if statement on whether to add this "v" or not :)
Anybody else have strong opinions one way or another.
CAPI, all the buildpack releases, routing-release    -  No 'v'
loggregator, statsd-injector-release, uaa, diego, garden-runc-release - Yes 'v'
