Dear all,

At the recent f2f in Dublin we were talking about the possible 
development of a vocab to describe APIs - effectively a 
dcat:Distribution that isn't a download or a page that points to a 
download or whatever.

With that in mind I was pleased to see a presentation by Markus 
Lanthaler at WWW in Rio last week. He has one [1]. His use case is 
different - he wants to be able to build one tool that interacts with 
many data sets - but it's very much in alignment.

As you know, we're working on new charters for new WGs and the 
development of a vocab for describing APIs is on the current draft list 
of deliverables. If that all goes to plan I imagine we'll be paying 
close attention to Markus's work!
