Hi.

We're elaborating a first draft of the specs for an Ontology meant to
describe software development forges and projects hosted in forges.

It mainly describes only very basic facts about highest-level entities
in forges : tools and projects (and people).

Several use-cases can be described, mainly :
      * adding Linked-Data / Semantic-Web metadata production in the
        forge interfaces (RDFa, etc.) 
      * using a common language to describe forge projects or forge
        structure in export formats (first priority for us at the moment)
      * ...

I'd like to receive comments on what's wrong / missing / unclear. 

It heavily depends on SIOC, and reuses DOAP to some extent, of course.

You'll find an early draft in 2 files I just uploaded to
https://forge.projet-coclico.org/frs/?group_id=8&release_id=2 (OWL and
HTML "autodocs"/specs)

And also a more detailed diagram and docs in
https://forge.projet-coclico.org/plugins/mediawiki/wiki/wp2/index.php/Forge_Ontology_Proposal

Ultimately, we'd like to implement this for fusionforge projects, which
would help integrating software development forges as contributors to
the Semantic Web, allowing things like direct linking to artifacts
produced in the forges, forge projects, navigating, and other QA
applications that would be SemWeb aware.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Best regards,
