== Metadata ==
Some while ago, people in the [ Free Art community] have been asking for a metadata format to recognize works of free art.
An RDF schema was envisioned that would help tag free works of any kind (art, software, etc.). I have written [ a simple draft of such a schema]. The aim was to establish in the technical field (markup, tools) the political importance of free contents. Since then, the project has been in deep sleep; perhaps we can revive it some day under the Free C(ontent|ulture) banner.
Creative Commons already have their own metadata, which spans non-free as well as free works; my draft tried to inherit some of its vocabulary from the CC vocabulary, so as to enable interoperability (only for free works of course).
The DOAP maintainer [ expressed interest] in such a project, noting however: ''"it seemed to me to require buy-in from more parties than I felt I could achieve in DOAP alone"''. [ DOAP] (Description of a Project) is a metadata format which provides machine-readable tagging with semantics similar to the information provided by SourceForge and the like. Projects like the [ FSF/UNESCO Free Software Directory] could use DOAP to store and spread metadata.
''(of course, the schema draft or even my understanding of RDF might be totally awful. I had no prior knowledge about the so-called "Semantic Web" when this project was first envisioned.)''
