Sorry, I missed this email, but I'll be at the council meeting to listen
in on talk about GLEP 46.
Having Freshmeat, SourceForge etc. project id's in metadata.xml sounds
I would gladly write a tool to go through SourceForge and Freshmeat's
metadata and match project names to ebuild package names using HOMEPAGE.
I already have code to parse FLOSSMole's metadata, so it'd be
simple to whip up quickly.
doapspace.org has an API that lets you give a SourceForge, Freshmeat,
PyPI and RubyForge project name and get metadata back, so having a link
to the DOAP's URL in metadata.xml isn't really needed for those. For
self-hosted projects, we could either put a link to the DOAP in
metadata.xml, or simply make sure the HOMEPAGE matches the homepage in
the DOAP itself. The second is preferable because the URL to the DOAP
Meatoo will be much more accurate after I cross-reference metadata from
FLOSSMole to map Gentoo package names to other forge/package index
names. Once that's done, we'll have very accurate version bump info that
can be looked up by herd/maintainer, from SourceForge, RubyForge,
