The idea of DOAP  is building internationalizable descriptions of
software projects 
and its associated resources, including participants and Web resources

By now (first iteration) the description of software releases is not

There are some incongruities between [1] and [2], so I couldn't find
property stated in the textual description [2] also in the schema [1].

Currently DOAP implements 3 classes:

- Project: obviously the main class, 
- Version: an instance of released software
- Repository: a source code repository

DOAP includes the property revision which might fit into our concept

property: revision		Revision identifier of a software
  	isDefinedBy:	http://usefulinc.com/ns/doap# 
  	domain:	 	http://usefulinc.com/ns/doap#Version 
  	range:		http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#Literal 

I'm not sure if this project is in an operable state.

[2] states 4 properties of class Version:

branch		A string indicating the branch of this version, such as
		unstable, gnome24, or gnome26
name		A release name, such as Panther
created		Date of release in YYYY-MM-DD form
revision	Revision number of the release, such as 1.0 

Does it make sense to declare a subclass of class Version in EARL, and
property revision (or  isVersion)?
