Ahhh, sorry. Sorceforge says java, the Green River website
says Ruby:

" Leeber is an open source project being developed at sourceforge, and 
written in the Ruby programming language. Leeber is our first application 
of RDF at the Semantic Web. It is a resource cataloging application. It can 
be used to catalog anything, however it is typically used to catalog 
web-based resources. Leeber has two interfaces, one for those creating the 
catalog, and one for those using it. The interface for users features a 
"web portal" style interface intended to make it easy for users to quickly 
find very specific subsets of cataloged resources."

I guess they forgot to change it when they cut and pasted that
paragraph... I take you know about this project -- is it worth
looking at?
