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 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.
