Good timing and a useful discussion. I have just uploaded a proposal
for a http://schema.org/SoftwareApplication plus associated
properties.

See http://www.w3.org/wiki/SoftwareApplicationSchema in our W3C Wiki
area. The proposal for now is a PDF attachment, but I've put a brief
summary in the Wiki page too.

It is based on the earlier deployment of a Software Application
vocabulary by the Rich Snippets team at Google, but is not 1:1
identical with that.

The scope is not exactly the same; it does not attempt to describe
opensource projects as such, and (like the rest of schema.org) doesn't
touch on the topic of license description.

Comments welcomed here or in the Wiki,

cheers,

Dan

ps. this proposed SoftwareApplication class was discussed briefly back
in December,
