Dear all,

As per our action item [1], we propose to replace earl:Software with 
doap:Project, and its associated properties: doap:homepage and 
doap:release, which is in the range of the Class doap:Version. All other 
properties and classes of the vocabulary could be used as well.

See: <http://usefulinc.com/ns/doap#>

According to its site: "DOAP is a project to create an XML/RDF 
vocabulary to describe software projects, and in particular open 
source." It is mainly used by open source projects like those of the 
Apache Foundation, but analysing the vocabulary, I do not see any 
problem to be used in commercial products.

If accepted, we could rewrite the section in the schema an the guide.
