https://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.git/ (
git://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/platform/eclipse.platform.git) has tags with naming convention of
I20181126-0140 (I Followed by YYYYMMDD-HHMM)
Y20181128-2200 (Y ...)
S4_10_0_RC1 (S...)
P20190228-2305 (P...)
U20170913-1050 (U...)

I didn't get a right place / couldn't find what are these prefix stands for.
If we want to build Eclipse platform which is based on 4.8 or 4.9 release then which tag should be used.

If I look at the maintenance branch for 4.8:

https://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.git/log/?h=R4_8_maintenance

I see a tag like this:

https://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.git/tag/?h=R4_8

The platform always seems to create maintenance branches so you could use those. I also see tags like R4_* all the way up to https://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.git/tag/?h=R4_11 and I imagine when 4.12 releases there will be an R4_12 tag...

Some of those at least are tagged in accordance with the build types. https://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/build_types.html

Thank you.
I was interested in Release branch and its clear now to pick "R4_XX_maintenance" branch rather than Tag's.
