I like Advogato!  Just got an account.
It seems to have checks in (almost) all the boxes!

I'm trying to push the use of FOAF for trust, specifically connecting  
FOAF to OpenID.


Advogato is nice as it does both of them.

My wishlist is:

1.  Allow people to give in their profile an RDF ID for themselves  
( or >1).  This acknowledges that Adv. is not the only network ... it  
would allow me to connect to another site like it for example.   
My.opera.com does this, for example .  If everyone does this we can  
make a complete open social network.  You publish  owl:sameAs    
linking the person in the site ti the person in the other site.

2. I love the foaf.  How about DOAP for projects? It is an ontology  
like FOAF.
	For example http://usefulinc.com/ns/doap#Project
	Example file http://dig.csail.mit.edu/2005/ajar/ajaw/data#Tabulator.rdf

	If you gave each project an RDF URI  like say


(not the project home age or human-readable page, the RDF ID of the  
thing itself)
then people and projects would be connected.  It'd be able to browse  
around eth co-developer web in data space, make trust metrics like  
"anyone who has worked with me on a project, to 3 hops" and so on.
