An issue has arisen in the main section, where the following question about a Mathematica package:
... has been voted as off-topic for the following reason:
The question does not concern the technical computing software Mathematica
The question plainly does concern the software Mathematica. I am not the OP of the question ... but took interest in the question as it relates to a Mathematica package that I am an author of, and highlighted a possible problem or issue in the design of the software.
A quick check of the Mathematica.SE tags shows that:
there exists a special
packagestag for questions relating to Mathematica packages
the defn of the packages tag is:
"self-contained bundles of Mathematica code that add new functions and other functionality"
that there are over 450 questions on this site relating to Mathematica packages, including Combinatorica, Groebner basis packages, Analytica, Wolfram third-party packages etc etc
Moreover, this issue appears to have been discussed before ... see for instance: Are questions about SystemModeler on-topic? where the consensus view is that such questions are On Topic.
Given that the question has been closed as 'off-topic', do we need to remove the packages tag, or create a new site for Mathematica packages discussion, or remove the 400+ questions on this site that are about Mathematica packages?
In essence, are questions about Mathematica packages within the ambit of the Mathematica.SE site?
