Perfect. I'll take a look there.

The first thing I'd like to change the way RDF files are generated.
Generate RDF/XML with a XML library could look like a good idea, but
actually it's a very bad one.  Valid XML files could be invalid RDF/XML. So
i'd like to switch to RDFLib to generate those files. I'll provide a patch
for internal validation. One idea that copuld show how the semantics goes
beyond the syntax is to generated those DOAP files in other serializations,
such as JSON-LD or Turtle. Then we'll slowly move into a more correct way.

Is that fine for you?

Well, the current file at
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/infrastructure/site-tools/trunk/projects/data/
contain only basic PMC information (name, homepage and chair), which I
think we could get from LDAP or any other source.

The key concept I'd like to introduce here is that the less manually
generated files the better for building a machine-drive infrastructure on
top of them.

Ah, great!

Thanks.
