This domain seems unreliable. I will not use anything linked to it.

There are several things of DOAP that we could reuse for EARL. The
revision property is linked to the http://usefulinc.com/ns/doap#Version
Class. Maybe we can create an earl#doap property that links to a DOAP
description.

Alternatively, we could create our own earl#version, but that is too
limited IMHO.

carlos
