Please forgive the cross-posting.
For my final project in the class Digital Libraries, I am bringing
together a "bibliography" ("appliography"?) of open source software
applications and free web services that would be useful in the
construction of digital libraries. (How self-referential can you get?
;-)) I am looking for advice on finding, selecting, and using an
existing XML schema that would include syntax for the type of
application, target platforms, OSs, licensing, etc.
In searching Ask.com and Google, I zeroed in on OSD, the Open Software
Description Format, but I'm not finding a lot of new material about
it, and I can't recall ever reading about it. Is this in fact the
latest and greatest? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
