Personally, I hadn't tagged/branched my packages because I wasn't sure
which solution was better, or what to do exactly, and how much time it
would take me to (search how to) do it.
But now I found that:
And from pkg's docs, we are also told that:
( http://docs.racket-lang.org/pkg/Package_Concepts.html )

which should be sufficient to know how to make and use tags.
So now at least one of my packages is tagged, and future ones will probably

Side notes:
