Hi Edd,

DOAP is very useful in terms of the description of a project.
DOAP doesn't seem to cover the description of an individual software  
like name, version, release dates, bug list, etc.

I'm asking this because I was in ERT/QA joint meeting [2] yesterday.  
The ERT WG in the design of EARL needs an "earl:software" [1] for  
describing a specific software.  But using the earl namespace for  
this seems to be a bit awkward.

Have you already worked a bit on this?
Or do you have an example which would cover this case?
Or do you have pointers which might interest the ERT WG?
