All products will evolve over time, the packaging might change, the ingredients might evolve, labels can be added and finally a product can be taken off the market and the barcode can be reused.
At the moment OFF does not support evolution. Just the latest information is shown. It would be nice to have some help before full scale support.
Can the folkosonomy come to the rescue? We might introduce some standard tags that help here. For instance:
- evolutions: which indicates how many evolutions a product has on OFF;
- evolution-versions-i: the product versions (a list) that correspond to evolution i
- evolution-images-i: the image numbers (a list) that correspond to evolution i;
At least this will encode any evolutions that we see, which might come in use later.
