Just a thought, perhaps we could consider 'opening up' the releases in the required DataStage Release field for the 7.x versions? There are enough differences between 7.0, 7.1 and 7.5 that sometimes we have to ask which sub-version (for lack of a better term) or minor release someone has. Some posters are putting that in the additional information field, but I was wondering if we could break the 7.x entry down to something like:
    7.0.x
    7.1.x
    7.5.x

Thanks.

Hawk? (8.x?)
Rhapsody? (9.x?)
Another forum for Sorcerer? (the new UI for all Ascl products)

Of course you'd need to add additional entries as new versions become GA. We'll have to see about 'Sorcerer'...

Of course, with Sorcerer, one may not be cogizant of exactly what type of operation they're performing! It's intended to be "one front end fits all", and customizable to personal preference to boot!

And, for example, with all functionality visible in all products, and a common repository, the distinctions are likely to become very blurry indeed.

Clearly some very careful thought will be needed to determine forum categories!

If it's any consolation, ADN will have exactly the same dilemmas.
