This German blog post shares thoughts on how to publish application profiles in a formal machine-readable way. Currently, there doesn't seem to exist any common practice for publishing machine-readable documentations of application profiles. The author attempts here to publish an AP documentation using OAI-ORE. OAI-ORE offers what one needs to represent application profiles – or at least the characteristics of APs we were looking for – in RDF. The question is whether it is also comfortable to create and make use of or whether one should look for a lightweight alternative.
