Hi all,

I¹m also glad to let you know that last Friday we already released the open
source of our Open Assets focused on Open Apps (the ontology can be found
http://openapps.euskadi.net/en/node/4  through the link behind of this text:
³Policy for opening applications and reuse the Basque Autonomous
Community²). 

Open Apps has been developed as a DCAT extension so this platform can also
be easily adapted as an Open Data one although Open Assets are not
restricted just to Open Data as you can realize after reading the above
mentioned ontology.

Open Assets ontology includes a link between repositories because they are
also considered as assets, and also properly deal with IPR issues, including
those related to the documentation that use to come with Open Data data
sets...

The source code has been developed using PHP 5 on Drupal 7 and we are now
finishing the plug-in to export RDF descriptions too.

I hope you enjoy this implementation OpenApps.Euskadi.net, its source code
and maybe the code of the other apps already released as Open Apps too; and
just let you know that this is already supported by a Decree in the Basque
Government and is being considered as standard candidate for the Public
Administrations of the Government of Spain.

Best regards,

Serafin Olcoz
