We would like to make the [W3C software][1] page a bit more user  
friendly and more in synchronization with the reality. One way to do  
this is to have code maintainers to update a local file with the  
information about their code. It seems that [DOAP][2] is a good  
candidate for it. The page containing information about the software  
could be either in RDF or in XHTML containing an RDFa vocabulary ala  

A few questions, before reinventing the wheel.

* Is there an RDFa version of DOAP?
* Is there a converter hdoap to DOAP (rdf/xml) or DOAP (rdf/nturtle)?
* Is there already an aggregator with the source code available for  

I imagine a weekly cron doing a HTTP HEAD on each doap/hdoap URI,  
before fetching it, would be enough to have a page more up to date  
and without too much trouble for the developers.
