Hi all,

I started the rewriting of the versioning section [1] according to some of
the ideas discussed in this thread and it will be great to have your
feedback. Please feel free to make modifications or suggestions.

Until now, I just considered data updates. If possible, I'd like to have
your opinion if schema updates should also be considered a case of
versioning, i.e, when  the schema of a dataset changes, should be created a
new dataset or just a new version of the existing dataset?
