According to the packages tag wiki:
This tag marks questions which are about packages in general, for instance about installing, using or writing packages.
Is the package-writing tag redundant and should be merged into packages? Or should we remove the ”writing”-part from packages? Or should package-writing be a tag that can be applied in addition to packages?
Further, current usage seems to be tag requests for a package that does something specific with packages. Should there be a separate tag for these kinds of question? (We had a package-hint tag, but I was only used by one question. )
