Attributes Description Type Use
version Version number of the release. The version format is described in Version Type. VersionType required

Tools will continue to work but may provide indicators highlighting end of support for the pack and its content. Not recommended for use with new projects. Note this attribute is only relevant when set for the latest release located on top of the releases section. xs:date optional

E.g. the maintainer of the PACK A.X_DFP changes from vendor A to vendor B. In this case the attribute deprecated gets set in the A.X_DFP.pdsc and the replacement attribute set to B.X_DFP. Tools use this information to redirect users to a supported pack. xs:string optional
