Authoritative linked data descriptions of debian source packages using ADMS.SW

Abstract : The Debian Package Tracking System is a Web dashboard for Debian contributors and advanced users. This central tool publishes the status of subsequent releases of source packages in the Debiandistribution. It has been improved to generate RDF meta-data documenting the urcepackages, their releases and links to other packaging artifacts, using the ADMS.SW 1.0 model. This constitutes an authoritative source ofmachine-readable Debian "facts" and proposes a reference URI naming scheme for Linked Data resources about Debian packages. This should enable the interlinking of these Debian package descriptions with other ADMS.SW or DOAP descriptions of FLOSS projects available on the Semantic Web also using Linked Data principles. This will be particularly interesting for traceability with upstream projects whose releases are packaged in Debian, derivative istributions reusing Debian source packages, or with other FLOSS distributions.
