The README states a directory structure with a top-level collection
directory, but the repository currently does not include one.


Looking at:


https://github.com/dupr/DefaultCollection/blob/master/rover/rover.durpkg


I see that the name of the directory repeats quite a number of times.
The clean function needs to state 'rm -rf' explicitly, which I hope
won't lead to typos.


The changelog is buried deep inside the package an needs to be updated
whenever a version number is bumped.
