In computer software, semantic versioning (or something like it) is something of a standard for how to version software releases. The
Major.Minor.Patch semantics make clear how big of a change has occurred between the present and an earlier release. Is there something similar for versionining a dataset? Unlike with software, any change to a dataset might be a "major" change, so I'm not sure that the logic translates directly. Is there any commonly used specification for versioning a dataset?
