Package development and topics on Github

package
proposal

#1

Hello,

I noticed recently that Github have a feature for repositories named "topics"


https://help.github.com/articles/about-topics/

Maybe Julia package developers should be induced to use some topics.

Kind regards


Juliaobserver.com 🔎 a package browsing tool for julia

Maybe this is a good way to group packages without them joining a github organization (which some package authors maybe hesitant).


#3

Currently the following topics starting with “julia” exist

julia
julia-language
julia-scripts
julia-wrapper
julia-library
julia-fractal
julia-logo
julia-client

Maybe every Julia package should use julia-library topic
or julia-language.

What is your opinion?

I think “julia” tag is enough for Julia packages.
