I feel a bit of confusion between business-finance and personal-finance.
Looking at the tinyerp proposal I wonder whether office::erp isn't a
better go.  Note that I don't precisely know what's an ERP :)

Another ERP thing in Debian is facturalux, totalling 3 package
candidates.  Maybe whatever this tag is, it can wait another bit.

Knowledge-management maybe?  Like knowledgetree?
I do agree these two tags look the same to me.

I added office::groupware.  I feel like the description could be
improved, as groupware sounds to me like "software for groups" and
doesn't tell much about what it does.  "Group coordination"?
"Group work?"

Good question.  In that case, it probably belongs in scope::*.
I'm all for leaving it aside.
