ISA Deliverable: The vision for an enhanced software description metadata schema and software catalogue for e-Government

The Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA) Programme of the European Commission currently encourages public administrations in Europe to share and reuse free and open source software (F/OSS) and give better visibility to this software through a "federation" of software forges on Joinup.

  This document formulates the vision for better interlinking on-line software repositories. This can be achieved by creating an enhanced software description metadata specification that will allow software forges to exchange more information about their software projects and software assets. In addition to this, this report analyses the benefits and costs of constructing and maintaining an EU-wide software catalogue for public administrations on the Joinup platform.
