Software Forges: Webinar 2012.05.22 on the technical aspects of interlinking software forges

This document contains the agenda and meeting minutes of the Virtual Meeting of 22 May 2012 on the technical aspects of interlinking software forges.

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. In this Webinar, the vision for better interlinking on-line software repositories is outlined. This vision can be achieved by agreeing on an enhanced software description metadata specification (ADMS.F/OSS) that will allow software forges to exchange more information about their software projects and software assets. Furthermore, we will discuss the technical aspects of implementing the ADMS.F/OSS metadata vocabulary and protocols for the exchange of software description metadata.
