My question is simply:
What is the preferred way for CV users to share data?
If there isn't one, I think there should be.
For example, some users provide a link to an external data source. Others dump it in
code mode. Each has its pros and cons, but at least they are open ways of sharing the data.
Seeing "[...] send me the data through email" a couple of times on CV was the motivation for this question. I hope we – as a community – agree that such behavior should be discouraged.
