Collaborations intended to harmonize the chaos regarding metadata and linked data about Software.

List of initiatives and contacts

Issues for discussion

  • In the effort of harmonizing metadata :
    • should we strive to contain all domains, every use case and every exception?
    • should we keep only the vital minimum for citation and search?
  • Terminology : What is Software ?
      • distinguishing between a software artifact, a software project and a software entity
      • distinguishing between software "object"(executable) and software source code
      • different versions form one software entity?
