I just had a look at the tagging interface and they seem to be already
there :)

After trying to use, I have a few extra questions:

> +Tag: biology::emboss

Any idea why the debian packages emboss and emboss-explorere are not
available for tagging?

> +Tag: field::biology:bioinformatics
> +Tag: field::biology:molecular
> +Tag: field::biology:structural

Should we remove the field::biology tag when using one of its childs?
For instance, if we use field::biology:molecular, will the package still
show up in searches for field::biology?

For field::biology:bioinformatics, I think that I agree with Steffen
that bioinformatics is very vague. It could be replaced by
sequence-analysis, although had we works-with::sequence we could use it
in conjunction with use::analysis (and I still think that
works-with:;sequence is not overspecialised, compared for instance to
works-with::music-notation, or works-with::image:raster).

Lastly, I really think that it would be great if maintainers of packages
could easily subscribe to notification changes for the tagging of their
packages. In our case where the maintainer is a mail list, it would
greatly improve our ability to collaboratively maintain the tags.

Have a nice week-end,
