Maybe this tag's scope should be broadened so it covers posts about the value of or best practices for making research summaries?

E.g.: https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/6trt8mTsKfqJJbfJa/post-more-summaries-and-collections

See also my suggestion of making an entry/tag on "research distillation" or "research debt".

I think that this tag's scope should be expanded to include summaries of content that was originally/also published on the Forum, but where the summary is a separately written, shorter thing. (So not just a case where someone makes a linkpost which features an executive summary.) Examples of what I have in mind include:

I might make this change myself in a week or so if no one objects. But I wanted to give a chance for people to push back on the idea.

(Disclaimer: Jason and Neil are my colleagues at RP, but I'm writing this in a personal capacity rather than as an RP employee, and I'm pretty sure I'd think this is a good idea even if I didn't work at RP.)
