  • It looks like an awfully verbose way of saying some very simple things. And I expect that for it to be useful for users they'll need to do XML voodoo. Which is HARD. I just don't see the point of using an obfuscatory format like RDF/RSS/XML/whatever it's called this week, rather than (eg) the output from Data::Dumper or YAML. Maybe I'm missing something.

      RDF may be more suitable and appropriate for aggregation of the various metadata files relating to a single distribution. Much of it will be primarily for PAUSE and the indexers like search.cpan and the various tools people already use like cpan.pm so users generally won't ever need to look at the raw metadata unless they really want to.
