Removing the field::biology:bioinformatics and biology:: debtags ?

Dear all,

we have hundred of packages, and making sure that they are all comprehensively
tagged takes time.

As discussed earlier, the Debtags are not a hierarchical structure, that is,
field::biology:bioinformatics is not a child of field::biology.


In that sense, specialised tags are unnecessary complications unless they have
a direct use.  In our case, we have metapackages to guide our users to
bioinformatics packages.

Since we have a works-with::biological-sequence, I think I will start to go
ahead and replace field::biology:bioinformatics by works-with::biological-sequence.

Similarly, I am not using anymore the biology:: facet, that was created as a
compromise at a moment where I did not understand Debtags well, and propose to
delete them unless somebody uses them.

Is everybody fine with this ?

Have a nice day,
