Our sysadmin tells us that version 2.2 of CKAN has changed the 
management method of the URL of resources: a file in the fileStore can 
no longer be replaced by a new one without a new URL  ... This has 
significant impacts on the persistence of URIs for static files needing 
corrections (not version) and, so on the reuse of updated data. In this 
case, the user must navigate through the catalogue to get the right URL 
for each reuse! URL of static files are not useful in applications.

Do you have solutions to propose, for example, using the API or method 
of redirection (handle) of the URL?

I am very concerned by the persistence of URIs

Thank you for help and suggestion, and apologize my english ;-)
