Rpm2Html: RDF schema for RPM (and others) binary packages The work done on rpm2html, i.e. indexing a large amount
of RPM packages,

make me believe that there is a real
need for a mechanism allowing easy propagation of the
metadata associated to RPM packages. The goal is to provide
a simple mechanism to export the important information
about RPM packages, without carrying on the full data.

The W3C has issued the RDF draft which in my opnion
suit perfectly the purpose required, I expect that soon
standard browser will be able to parse and display metadata
expressed in RDF format:

I started trying to express the informations contained
in an RPM and needed by rpm2html export the RPM metatdata.
