[directory-discuss] DBpedia - open data sets and the FSD

I don't know about every dictionary, but I think the FSD could use DOAP 
(Description of a Project) ( Wikipedia entry: ). Other projects use it already, for 
example Apache for their projects 
(follow the .rdf links and look at the XML code). This one for example is the 
DOAP file for SpamAssassin
It would be nice if the FSD could also provide these files, such that they can 
be easily imported into any RDF store.

Is there any way to generate these files automatically from the current FSD 
database? Shouldn't be too difficult.
