Maybe this could be of interest to a few of my readers who may have missed the announcement, in particular for ones related to forges which will be deployed for private administrations in Europe.
The recently started ADMS.F/OSS project is described as :
ADMS.F/OSS is an XML and RDF vocabulary to describe software, in
particular free and open-source software (F/OSS), making it possible to
more easily search and discover software. The ADMS.F/OSS specification is still under development.
It is developped in the frame of an EC (European Community) programme for interoperability between public administrations (more on the page above).
I’ll try and participate to the working group, bringing in some feedback from the efforts on similar issues conducted during the (now over) COCLICO project.
Hope this helps.
