@roll @vitorbaptista do we have a common repo(s) where we have sample data files e.g. sample csv, sample data packages etc?
If not what do you think of maintaining one? It would be super useful for the community to have a common set of test data.
Thinking about requirement for example data packages:
My sense is that the "exemplar" and "test" use cases are somewhat different. 1+3+4 are exemplar and want "nice' data packages". 2 (+1) are more test and are about testing the real range of sitautions and being super simple for testing.
My sense is that the key here to focus on is the test (lib developer) case to start with.
They probably want versioning and ability to git submodule so they can pin the data they are developing against (e.g. if data package spec gets upgraded they can still keep old spec versions if they need them).
About issues current system is we have two main issue trackers aside concrete libs:
The second on I think could be used as just for everything else except the specs. Also the FD workboard lives on this repo:

@nathanxmeyer first, great to hear from you. To answer your questions:
My first question is whether the frictionless data schema specifications for datapackage and table are fairly stable.
Yes, the schema specs are definitely very stable - they are now v1.0 and have been refined for ~5y. Of course, they will continue to evolve gently but backwards compatibility will be maintained etc.
My second question is whether the goodtables python implementation is something that has future viability
Yes, absolutely. These have been heavily developed and will be continue to be!
