ProjectsFinder: add parameter 'topic' in place of 'tag' [RUN ALL RSPEC]


In GitLab, a project can have topics and tags (git tags) on its repository. Unfortunately, topics appear in various places under the name tags, which leads to a lot of confusion. As discussed in #328226 (closed), this confusion is to be cleared up. So I submitted the MR !60834 (closed) for that. However, the MR was too big. So I closed the MR and will submit several separate MRs instead.

What does this MR do?

To filter projects by a topic using the ProjectsFinder, the parameter tag had to be specified until now. As described in the introduction above, this parameter name is not correct.

This MR replaces the tag parameter with the topic parameter, but the deprecated tag parameter still works.

This change also affects the Explore projects page, where the parameter can be used:

Does this MR meet the acceptance criteria?
