Just to add my POV, I also find your posts unhelpful, Wes. There's not
enough information for me to evaluate what you say, and you offer no
actual solutions to what's being discussed.

I could quote myself suggesting solutions in this thread, if you like?

As Nick says, if you can demonstrate what you're suggesting via a
prototype implementation, that might help. But endless posts of links
to standards documents that I have neither the time nor the
inclination to read are not useful.

I'm suggesting that the solution here is to create version-controlled collections of resources with metadata. 

With schema.org types, those are Collection s of CreativeWork s. (Or, e.g. SoftwareApplicationCollection s of SoftwareApplication s)

With Django, one would create a ListView generic view for the given resource type; and then define e.g. an api.py for DRF (Django REST Framework), and an index.py for Haystack (Elastic search).

A Pyramid implementation would be similar; with additional tests and code just like Donald.
[Links omitted because you can now copy/paste keywords into the search engines yourself; because you're unable to scroll past citations to find the content you're looking for.]

DWBP and BP-LD would be useful reading for Warehouse API developers seeking to add additional functionality to support the aforementioned use cases with maximally-compatible linked open data.

Have a good day.
