Category for announcements?


#1

Perhaps a separate category for new announcements would be useful, with topics for packages, and pinned topics for important ones, including Julia releases.


#2

I was wondering if it should be a category or a tag, which could cut across different categories, since it makes sense to have announcements in any category essentially.


#3

I think having a announcement category would make sense as a replacement/alternative of julia-news, as well as an announcement tag. The announcement category would be low volume, and the tag would be more liberally used.


#4

Is there a place where package announcements should go (the julia-users kind)? Usage?


#5

For now use the Community category. A Package category may be created in the future.


#6

I would find it helpful to have new package announcements and notable package updates in their own place.
As an ancillary benefit, it would better share a deeply informing sensation of Julia as innovation’s present.
