Data Package Name
The Data Package name is used in the name field of the datapackage.json.
This name is also frequently used for the folder/directory in which the Data Package is stored.
and also says,
Data Package Folder Names and Structure
It is standard practice to use the Data Package name (from the datapackage.json) for the name of the folder/directory in which the Data Package is kept.
