Some of this stuff works. I am not sure how much more it will get worked on - the working group dealing with EARL will apparently be restarted, which might raise my interest in this work, which I do in my spare time.
This is some stuff for working with EARL. The idea is to provide conversions between different versions of EARL, and then some tools that let you do useful things with the information (detecting conflicts in merged EARL records, deciding who does stricter evaluations, who agrees on a given point, whether some page is useful for a person with a given profile, etc).
This is inspred by the work Sean Palmer did on automatic EARL 0.9 to 0.95 conversions. (Although I didn't really read that - I just liked the idea).
All of this stuff should be used with caution. Feedback, bugfixes, etc most welcome - please send them to the publicly archived mailing list email@example.com which I read...
So far not a lot of it works. There are some n3 rules files, that have been tested with cwm. Assuming you have a copy of cwm, and have aliased a command called cwm to run it,
cwm --rdf acbrief --n3 fromAcVal.n3 alsoAcVal.n3 --think --filter=fromAcVal.n3 --rdf
produces a useful conversion from the output of AccessValet to the latest working draft of EARL. There are a few things missing in it, but it's a start. (And getting this stuff working is better than not having it working...
Pretty much everything. In particular I want conversions for the output of at least the following tools:
Then I want to be able to answer useful questions with the output of these tools, and tools that already use the latest version of EARL
Need to find a pointer to the stuff that Shadi Abou-Zahra has done along these lines, too.
