I agree that  the working group should not recommend specific tools for
dataset versioning and replication.

I think that this should be a more general recommendation, i.e., "the working
group should not recommend best practices based on specific tools".

In my opinion, this use case motivates the creation of  a new challenge and
a new set of requirements. The challenge may be called "Data Versioning"
and a new requirement could be "Data versioning information should be
available. "

kind regards,
Bernadette
