DOAP: Description of a Project.

First we had the FOAF (Friend of a Friend) and now we have DOAP!

Edd Dumbill has written a series of articles (part 1, part 2, part 3 and part 4) at developerWorks in which we develops an RDF vocabulary for describing open source software projects.

Here's how the DOAP project is described in DOAP -

<Project xmlns=""

<homepage rdf:resource="" />

<shortdesc xml:lang="en">
Tools and vocabulary for describing community-based
software projects.
<description xml:lang="en">
DOAP (Description of a Project) is an RDF vocabulary and
associated set of tools for describing community-based software
projects. It is intended to be an interchange vocabulary for
software directory sites, and to allow the decentralized
expression of involvement in a project.
