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.
A new paper of ours was just published. If you’re curious about all that Semantic Web and Linked Data hype and how it would impact forges and other software development tools, and the link with Open Source development platforms, then, read this :

We’ve been working on modeling bug reports properties for quite a long time, but never managed to stabilize an ontology specification. Better late than never, here’s our first proposed draft and our request for comments :
More details in the helios project’s blog :
We have setup, as part of our work in Helios, a very early demonstrator of a database of RDF facts about bugs in several distributions (currently Debian and Mandriva), in order to try and validate the Ontology describing bugs that we develop.
Here’s a pointer to the first webcast on fetchbugs4.me’s blog, with more details.
For the needs of the Helios project, I’ve written a script which uses htmldoc to convert the multi-framed HTML documentation as generated by Protege’s OWLDoc plugin to a single HTML document.
Example : the Helios_BT ontology documentation generated by OWLDoc, and the result in one single HTML document.
The Python script is at : owldoc2htmldoc.py (see also the README).
