Create an ASF DOAP File
To be listed on this site, your Apache project must create a DOAP file. The DOAP format is RDF based, so while it is human readable it's primarily meant to be machine read. Creating the file from scratch can be a little intimidating, so this page will allow you to generate an initial file that can then be edited to suit. Alternatively, you can browse the existing projects for one with similar resources and use its DOAP file as a starting point.
Complete the form
Please remember that the data contained in the DOAP file is used directly on the website so please take care when adding content.
Customise your file
The file that is created when you submit your data is only a starting point. You'll likely need to modify some aspects of it, especially adding data that the form doesn't allow you to enter. You should be able to simply copy/paste/edit the sections you need to duplicate.
You may have more than one of the following sections.
Validate your file
It is a good idea to check if your DOAP file is at least valid RDF. This can be accomplished using the W3C RDF Validator service. While this won't tell you if your file meets DOAP or Apache guidelines, it is at least a good basic sanity check.
Submitting your file
Your DOAP file should be stored somewhere that is publically accesible. For most projects this will be in their subversion repository, but there is no requirement for it to be stored there.
Once you have decided where the file will be stored, send an
email to <site-dev at apache.org> so it may be included in the project listings.

DOAP Creation Form
Before completing this form you should really read the guidelines.
When you submit this form a sample file will be created and returned to you. It will be named 'doap_<project>.rdf'. and will be presented as a downloadable file.
