One of the ways the Retriever makes it easy to add new datasets is by allowing datasets to be added using simple plain text descriptions of the data that are then parsed into Python. There is an emerging standard for this kind of metadata called datapackage.json.

This project would upgrade the EcoData Retriever to use the datapackage.json standard.

Additionally, I propose to add Python3 support as well as I find that its an easy enough issue to resolve during the 12 weeks of SoC.
