Description: <http://www.dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/#Software>
RDF Schema: <http://purl.org/dc/dcmitype/Software>

Since DC has a stable ("recommended") class for Software, I propose we replace the earl:Software class with this one.

In the EARL 1.0 Schema we would refer to this class in the same way we do for foaf:Person or foaf:Agent. In other words, dctype:Software would be an "Allowable Type" for Assertor and TestSubject. Additionally, there will be a *should* requirement for the dc:title property to be used.

Note that we currently have a *must* requirement for dc:title property on earl:Software but it may be tricky to have this same requirement when reusing an external term. Any comments on this?

Please indicate your opinion on this proposal to the list.
