I will consider that, but note that you can achieve the same using the
search box at the top.

Maybe ... that would require to maintain the list of packages updated.
I already have a script that imports packages from Github api.
The resulting list is not as clean as adding packages manually, though.
Specially regarding tags, that often are missing or not as precise as
they could be.

My idea is to use tags so that it is easy to find packages by category.
For example, try searching for "web", or "database", etc.

Yes, go ahead. But I can't promise we are going to follow them. Some
ideas may not be easy to implement as this is a static Jekyll site using
a theme (it is not as flexible as hand coded html with server support
IMO), and I'm having to give up some of my ideas in order to cooperate
with others (perhaps we will need to start voting at some point :) ).

Thank you!
