As TopAnswers now supports tag descriptions (see https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=538), it is time to collect them.

I propose to add a separate answer for each tag, so that comments can link to the answer they are about and we can keep track of the history easily.

List of tags without description:

- ~~arara~~
- ~~beamer~~ 	 			
- ~~biblatex~~
- ~~classes~~
- ~~context~~
- ~~ctan~~
- ~~fancyhdr~~
- figures  			
- ~~fonts~~

- ~~pandoc~~
- ~~pdftex~~
