That is, if a question is about a particular LaTeX package, or the accepted answer is, should that question be tagged with the package name as tag? I think this could be a good habit.

Yes, but IMO only if the question is also tagged with the appropriate tags for what the package does (i.e., [graphics]) so that you can find it in a search (i.e., so you wouldn't have to know the name of the package to find the question).

    Indeed. It should be 'extra'. That way, you can easily aggregate all knowledge about a particular package, as well as do the regular stuff. Jul 28, 2010 at 17:19

    We've had a similar discussion before about answer vs. question tags. See Adding tags to a question in accordance with a provided answer. I think the consensus is that tagging questions based on the answers is not a good idea. So if someone asks "how do I change a section heading", and the answer involves titlesec, the question should not get a titlesec tag.
