Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There is already a tag package-managers so is it a good idea to have similar tags for multiple languages? – Aziz Shaikh May 24 '13 at 13:56
