If I understand you, I'd change the Project to:
Is that what you mean?
This brings up another question. The DOAP doapspace produces is really
meant for people to download and start editing and using as their own.
DOAP is supposed to be de-centralized, so if someone is going to link
their FOAF to a DOAP profile, shouldn't they be downloading it and
hosting it themselves and linking to that?
I need change the hDOAP pages so they have a link to a clear explanation
about that aspect of DOAP.
My goal with doapspace is to be a temporary repository until the big
sites start producing it themselves.
As for doapspace and SPARQL, rather than duplicate doapstore's SPARQL
search functionality, I'm working on a method to search for DOAP by the
names people already know projects as. For instance you could give a
Debian package name, a Ruby gem name, a SourceForge project name etc.
and they will all point to the same DOAP profile.
A command-line client I'm working on does that by finding the project
homepage from a package manager and checking doapspace for DOAP with a
matching 'homepage' or 'old-homepage'.
