I don't remember if this was already mentioned, but another aspect of versioning may concern the resource "status" - e.g., draft, stable, deprecated, withdrawn.

The EU Publications Office maintains some reference code lists - the two that may be most relevant here are:
- [Dataset status](https://publications.europa.eu/en/web/eu-vocabularies/at-concept-scheme/-/resource/authority/dataset-status/?target=Browse)
- [Concept status](https://publications.europa.eu/en/web/eu-vocabularies/at-concept-scheme/-/resource/authority/concept-status/?target=Browse)

E.g., the dataset status code list above includes the following statuses (alphabetically ordered):

Code | Label | Definition
-- | -- | -- 
COMPLETED | completed | This dataset is considered to be complete, it holds all information that is intended.
DEPRECATED | deprecated | It is recommended that the contents of this dataset be no longer used.
DEVELOP | under development | This dataset is currently being assembled. It may be in an incomplete or faulty state.
DISCONT | discontinued | This dataset is no longer produced or updated.
WITHDRAWN | withdrawn | This dataset is no longer meant to be published.

The concept status code list includes additional statuses.

This information is clearly useful for administrative purposes, but relevant as well for users.

E.g., in the JRC Data Catalogue, these statuses determine where a dataset can be published (e.g., a dataset in draft status is not supposed to be published in production). On the other hand, deprecated, discontinued, or withdrawn records are not removed from the catalogue (because of the persistence policy we have in place), but they are "marked" as such, so that users are aware they shouldn't be used or are not longer available.
