Hi all,

I am a software engineer with a PhD in Computer Science. I have worked
on a number of RDF related projects since the start of my PhD, mainly
using Sesame, including also integrating Sesame with OWLAPI [1] over
the last few months to suit my current projects needs.

I am looking in the short term to restructure the Maven modules inside
of Any23 so that the different facets can be reused, tested and
maintained easily, particularly with a view to using the RDF related
Tika enhancements that the Any23 MIME Detector provides. I made these
changes a few months ago in my GitHub fork [2], so feel free to review
them closely to suggest enhancements before I actually start. I am not
sure when I will next have time to clean up the patches. The first
step that I want to take is to split out the test resources into a
single module and switch from "src/test/resources/*" File based access
in tests to using this.getClass().getResourceAsStream("*"). I have
implemented those changes in my git repository but the patches may
need cleaning up as I have not gone back to review them yet. After
that is done, it will be relatively simple to split out both the
packages and tests into separate modules.

In the short term I have also been tasked by the Sesame Developers
with merging the Any23 and Sesametools NQuads parsers and integrating
the resulting module into the Sesame Rio package. Then we can have a
rock-solid, standards-based, NQuads parser/writer that everyone can
easily reuse in a similar way to the other Rio parsers/writers. This
is the culmination of the
issue that Michele opened over a year ago.
