What is ADMS.F/OSS?
ADMS.F/OSS is a metadata vocabulary to describe software, making it possible to more easily explore, find, and link software assets on the Web. The specification aims at maximally reusing existing specifications, such as DOAP, ADMS, and the Trove software map. The current version of ADMS.F/OSS (version 0.3) was elaborated from January till April by a multidisciplinary Working Group of 45 people from 14 different countries and will be open for public comments till June 2.
The process and methodology followed in the development of ADMS.F/OSS is set out in detail in the document “Process and Methodology for Developing Core Vocabularies”. Further background is available in the studies "Vision for an enhanced software description metadata schema and software catalogue for e-Government” and “Report on existing Software Forges” which offers an overview and context for the work.
