What is is "12.2SX vs. 12.2SR bullshit" all about? I never really understood the myriad of letters in the version numbers. I only know about the first letter being an S, T, or M.

Is there a list of Cisco BUs and which product is messed up by whom?

I would have expected that most of the "it is fast and has XR" stuff comes from the same BU (since every BU has to have their own OS anyway[*]), but seemingly that was naive.

[*] now, one could argue that XR 6 qualifies for the "12.2SX vs. 12.2SR bullshit award 2016"...  so it might well be a different BU, with different features, and more inter-BU bullshit.

[**] BU-llshit???
