I’ll be presenting “Authoritative linked data descriptions of debian source packages using ADMS.SW” at OSS 2013.
Here’s the abstract :
The Debian Package Tracking System is a Web dashboard for Debian contributors and advanced users. This central tool publishes the status of subsequent releases of source packages in the Debian distribution.
It has been improved to generate RDF meta-data documenting the source packages, their releases and links to other packaging artifacts, using the ADMS.SW 1.0 model. This constitutes an authoritative source of machine-readable Debian “facts” and proposes a reference URI naming scheme for Linked Data resources about Debian packages.
This should enable the interlinking of these Debian package descriptions with other ADMS.SW or DOAP descriptions of FLOSS projects available on the Semantic Web also using Linked Data principles. This will be particularly interesting for traceability with upstream projects whose releases are packaged in Debian, derivative distributions reusing Debian source packages, or with other FLOSS distributions.
Update: If you are interested, a preprint is available here in HTML form. See also previous installments on ADMS.SW in this blog.
Update: The slides of the presentation I made at Isola are here.
We’ll be presenting at ICSSEA 2011 in november, our paper “Introducing OSLC, an open standard for interoperability of open source development tools“, which recaps of some efforts we conducted in COCLICO.
Authors: Olivier BERGER, Sabri LABBENE, Madhumita DHAR, Christian BAC
Abstract: In the COCLICO project, efforts have been made to improve interoperability of software development forges, to help integrate them better in the modern software quality process of organizations. In order to improve such interoperability, implementation of the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) specifications has been conducted (in particular the Change Management domain specifications). The OSLC-compatible open source adapters we have developed for the Jenkins Continuous Integration server and the FusionForge bugtrackers, have been integrated in a Web mashup, allowing to demonstrate the interoperability potential of OSLC-CM in a continuous integration use case. Even though deployment of OSLC is still limited for open source tools in the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) field, we believe it will offer great benefits and potential, for new complex and difficult problems, in particular for large scale bug tracking applications.
Keywords: ALM, standard, interoperability, OSLC, OSLC-CM, FusionForge, Jenkins, open source, free software
This is the first of a series of reports about what happened at the recent Libre Software Meeting 2010 (aka Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre) in the “Development” technical track I’ve been co-chairing. Note that we expect to have some recordings of most talks released some day, but it takes time. On the other hand, the slides are almost all accessible on the site.
