Subject Presentation and Projects without DOAP
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2013 17:30:49 GMT
Hi,

I am new to the list; my name is Davide Galletti and I am working on a 
EEC funded research project named MARKOS;

"MARKOS intends to realize the prototype of an automatic service 
providing an integrated view
on the Open Source projects available on the web, focusing on 
functional, structural and licenses
aspects of the software code released by the projects."
More detail and updates on http://www.markosproject.eu/

Within MARKOS I will realize a component called "Crawler" which will be 
responsilble for
gathering as much informationon OSS Projects as possible from forges, 
metaforges and any
source we might find interesting. The first release is expected in 2013, 
and development will
continue till the end of 2014, of course with an OSS license.
I believe I will access information on Apache projects from the list of 
DOAP files available here:
     
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/infrastructure/site-tools/trunk/projects/files.xml 
<https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/infrastructure/site-tools/trunk/projects/files.xml>
I have read from Rich Bowen that not all projects have a DOAP file.
Since, for the above reason, I will be very interested in the 
completeness and quality
of this list, I might take the task of checking which projects are 
lacking the file or have
it incomplete, create one for them and solicitate the project owner to 
complete it.
Of course I would need some help to get started; does it make sense?

Cheers,

Davide
