Over the years until now only 43 questions are tagged with . Now, with recently published version 3.12 of KOMA-Script a successor package scrlayer-scrpage came out, that is now recommended in favour of scrpage2. Two cites from English KOMA-Script doc scrguien (start of chapter 6, the basic description of scrlayer-scrpage):

… the additional package scrlayer-scrpage provides a user interface, which is largely compatible with scrpage2 and based on scrlayer. Thus, if you are already familiar with scrpage2 and refrain from using dirty tricks, like calling internal commands of scrpage2 directly, it should be easy for you to use scrlayer-scrpage as a drop-in replacement.

… if you are using a KOMA-Script class, the usage of package scrlayer-scrpage is recommended. Of course you can use scrlayer-scrpage with other classes, namely the LATEX standard classes, too.

Therefore my question(s): Should we

Regarding the last item: When would be a better/the right moment?

    Having 43 tagged by one of them and 0 tagged by the other one, I would wait for a while and see what happens. No need to be pre-cautious too much about tagging in this case, it doesn't seem to have so much traffic. – yo' Jan 27 '14 at 23:52

As I said in a comment: Having 43 tagged by one of them and 0 tagged by the other one, I would wait for a while and see what happens. No need to be pre-cautious too much about tagging in this case, it doesn't seem to have so much traffic.

If there arose some confusion about those two tags, we can review the solution and then it can get easily sorted out, since the number of changes would be in units, not hundreds ;)

I think you should create a new tag scrlayer. Although scrlayer will replace scrpage2, scrlayer has a complete difference syntax and mechanism so that you can't compare the two packages. The package scrpage2 will be declared as obsolete however it will be part of the KOMA-bundle to be backward compatible.

For me the packages scrlayer and scrpage2 are needing a separate tag.

  • that's especially true since scrlayer can be used for much more than to just create pagestyles. (cf. scrlayer-notecolumn for example) – clemens Feb 2 '14 at 13:34
  • Note, that scrlayer, scrlayer-scrpage and (in reaction to cgnieder’s comment) scrlayer-notecolumn are different packages. The two latter are just based on the first one. Nethertheless we could do it in this way, when we would add header-footer for scrlayer-scrpage and marginpar or a yet to be created margin-notes for scrlayer-notecolumn. – Speravir Feb 2 '14 at 19:01
