DOAP from the Bazaar

Last year, when I first released bzr-feed for generating an Atom feed for a Bazaar repository, I added an item to the TODO almost while writing the first lines:

* Add RDF/XML output with DOAP support

Just now, I removed that item, not because I updated bzr-feed, but because I have created a new Python script for generating DOAP using the same technique: bzr-doap.

Usage is quite simple — simply add something along the following lines to your .htaccess file, and you’re good to go (presuming the usual cgi-bin stuff is in order):

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-s
RewriteRule (.*).rdf$ bzr-doap.cgi?dir=$1

Output is generated based on the information present in the bzr branch, but it can be augmented/overridden through the use of a .doaprc in the current and/or parent directory, like this:

short_desc: DOAP generator for a Bazaar repository branch.
description: A CGI script for automatically generating DOAP for a Bazaar repository branch.
programming-language: Python

There is of course a DOAP for bzr-doap, and as usual an Atom feed for you to follow its development in its Bazaar repository.
