The webid.debian.net site is an experiment at publishing ?FOAF/WebIDs for Debian contributors.

It is managed by obergix.

See WebIDForDebianWebServices for a more general description of the use of WebID in Debian.


  • offers reference URIs for FOAF profiles for Debian contributors that can be linked from the ?PTS

Using it

 $ curl -s -H "Accept: text/turtle" http://webid.debian.net/maintainers/obergix

This fetches the RDF Turtle document which describes a Semantic Web resource named <http://webid.debian.net/maintainers/obergix#agent> who is a foaf:Person holding a foaf:OnlineAccount (<http://webid.debian.net/maintainers/obergix#account>).

For Debian project members, the FOAF URI is derived from the debian login, as <http://webid.debian.net/maintainers/LOGIN#agent>.

For non-project members, the FOAF URI is derived from an URL-encoded + lowercase email, as <http://webid.debian.net/maintainers/john.smith%40example.com#agent>.



Here are the next things planed :

  • generate the files periodically (the files are updated every day)

  • unify people's various accounts (exploiting the GPG keyring is an option)

Future ideas
