[Pharo-users] What does the Package and Sub-Package comment do?

Hi Tim.

Behaviour is similar to Pharo 6. When class is selected the comment belongs
to the class. If not then it belongs to the package.
There is no such thing as a tag comment.

I thought the default comment text is clear enough to avoid confusion. But
probably it's not as you wrote this mail.
So it is a room for improvements.

Package comment is managed as a comment of ts manifest class. When you
first time add it the manifest class is created.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? Not sure whether to report a bug or not.
