I am perusing the kubectl tags page, and I’m a bit confused as to why there are seemingly two tags for the same release.
For example, 12 days ago, the same commit was tagged
The version name within the tag prefixed with
kubernetes- works with the installation method on the kubernetes docs, and the version with the major version being
0 doesn’t work. I’m confused because the tag prefixed with
kubernetes- seems to indicate something is more kubernetes-specific than usual, or that the release cadence is in line with kubernetes releases? If that is the case, then why have a duplicate tag with a different version?
I’m asking because I am creating a generalized version manager (rbenv, nvm, etc.), and I am in the process of integrating
kubectl. - and I’m not sure how to process the versions. If they are always exact duplicates (or supposed to be), then I don’t want to print both versions. But if they are meant to indicate two different things, then I would like to show both versions at the same time.
I hope this is the right place to post, I almost created an issue at kubernetes/kubectl, but it seemed better to post here. Any info is appreciated
