Let me finalize this "What tags we should use for GCompris/Fructose/etc"
New AMO version and incoming ASLO v3 version have collections feature
I think we can move tags GCompris and Fructose(Core, etc) to collections
moreover every user/deployer/editor could create theirs own collections.
Is it the way to go?
