Alioth.debian.org now exports project meta-data as RDF (using DOAP/ADMS.SW)


Since last week or so, and thanks to Lo-lan-do's work, we now publish
RDF descriptions of every Alioth (950+) projects.

See my proposed Debian devel's news bit at :
reproduced below :

The alioth.debian.org forge now runs the ADMS.SW FusionForge plugin,
which publishes projects meta-data as RDF / Linked Data. 

Every project's homepage <https://alioth.debian.org/projects/PROJNAME/> is
then available as RDF for harvesting robots (using proper content-type
negociation, for instance : 
 $ curl -k -H "Accept: text/turtle" https://alioth.debian.org/projects/PROJNAME/ 

The two main ontologies used are DOAP [0] and ADMS.SW [1], rendering such meta-data compatible with
other project indexes (such as meta-data published by the PTS [2]). 

Note that due to the big number of hosted projects on Alioth (950+) some
package indexes can't be exported as RDF yet. 

More details in "ADMS.SW plugin for FusionForge deployed on Alioth" [3].

Comments / questions welcome.

Best regards,
