find attached the answer I got from Jörg Diederich (L3S Hannover, 
REWERSE) wrt. the reuse of REASE data for the SWIP of the InfoGathering 
work. Part of the rdf data they have is also attached.

Best regards,

I think as the first step SWIP can easily make use of the metadata +
let the SWIP link directly into REASE (so SWIP becomes an alternative
access interface to the data in REASE). 

I have enclosed the current RDF format we have for the metadata (it
might be in an ugly format; it is quite old and has been created way
before I joined the project; however, it might still be of use for
you). This data is freely available on REASE in anyway, but you can
save crawling our server using the rdf's directly...

Best regards,
