Remove Edition Number from automatic renaming for Dataset archive

For the moment, when you archive a 'dataset updating', it renames automatically to Dataset name & (Edition YYYY/E). It would be great not to put Edition number after YYYY as usually there is only one archive edition.

    I have already entered a similar idea: Make "/1" in Archive title optional upon archive creation

    Actually, this is very useful for MEI, but only for MEI. So could we have the option of keeping or removing the edition number in the title of the archive?

    Yes, Maggie, that's what I put in my idea. I have also talked about to Claudia. She still has to investigate, but I am don't think she's actually working on it at the moment.

    I see 3 options:

    • status quo, good for MEI, bad for everything else more or less
    • change the default, bad for MEI, good for everything else
    • make it optional as a prompted question on the archiving pop-up
