Hi group,


Looks like Pete is right. Is there an existing vocabulary containing a 
version number property that we can use?

I found an article on XML.com about extending RSS 
(<http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2003/07/23/extendingrss.html>), which 
mentions a "release schema at eikster.com":

> As it happens, there is at least one existing vocabulary designed to describe software releases. In fact, the release schema at eikster.com contains terms that directly correspond to our product and version called name and version. We can inherit their descriptions by making our properties subproperties of them.

with a link to <http://eikster.com/2003/release#>.

Unfortunately I can't find anything about this vocabulary on the linked 

DOAP has a literal <http://usefulinc.com/ns/doap#revision> property 
meaning "Revision identifier of a software release."
