Data Package names, folder names, and data package versions


#1

I’m wondering what approach should be taken to setting a data package name, data package folder name when applying data package versions?

The FAQ states that the data package name is frequently used for the folder name in which the Data Package is stored.

Assuming I have two versions of a data package in two separate folders:

works-to-tender_v0.1.0
   |- works-to-tender.csv
   |- datapackage.json
   |- README.md
works-to-tender_v0.2.0
   |- works-to-tender.csv
   |- datapackage.json
   |- README.md

Is it valid that:

  • the data package name in both datapackage.json files is works-to-tender?
  • the CSV filename doesn’t include the version?

What do you think about the convention to use _ to separate the name from the version? This differs from the Naming Convention for other qualifiers described in the FAQ.
