I think that this name change is unfortunate and should be changed again.
It is very common for (especially new) users to use latex-project for any question related to any part of the tex system, whether a problem with a specific package or with an editor or general latex syntax.
Almost invariably someone then does a tag edit to remove the tag.
On this site this constant retagging is time wasting and confusing but using "latex project" as a name for "anything about TeX" leads to other misunderstandings. In particular we see people coming to http://latex-project.org reporting bugs in contributed packages or looking to obtain a TeX distribution such as miktex or texlive.
http://latex-project.org is not for general tex questions or distribution: it is the project site for the core LaTeX code maintainers, so LaTeX2e base, tools, graphics (and amsmath, babel and psnfss) and also the LaTeX3 and expl3 codebases.
The stackexchange latex-project tag should be reserved for subjects that would be appropriate on that site.
The general LaTeX tags are now
latex-base for discussion of the latex base distribution, that is the classes and packages covered by https://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/base
latex-project for discussion of the LaTeX project and its aims (that is the core development sources for LaTeX2e and LaTeX3, including expl3). That is subjects that are in scope for the project website at http://www.latex-project.org.
latex-misc for general LaTeX questions where no more suitable tag exits. this is also used for several legacy questions that were formally tagged with latex-project, just to ease the conversion.
