Resource Description Framework

RDF is a W3C standard, which is a key to interoperability in exchange of data between different services, as data encoded in RDF is self-described to a certain extent, using Semantic Web techniques. RDF can be encoded in XML, or more textual formats like Turtle, or JSON-LD.

This page intends to hold pointers about various Semantic Web / RDF resources and tools linked to Debian.

RDF descriptions of Debian source packages on the PTS

Every Debian source package should have an RDF/XML representation available at http://packages.qa.debian.org/src_pkg_name

See for instance the apache2 data at : http://packages.qa.debian.org/apache2 (rapper -o turtle http://packages.qa.debian.org/apache2 or curl -L -H 'Accept: application/rdf+xml'  http://packages.qa.debian.org/apache2
