I may have something on the 15th and 16th, but otherwise I could be free. Note 
that I'm in UTC+11 at the moment.

I admit to not having looked really closely at DOAP - on my initial glace my 
brain kicked into its "I need a lot of time to absorb all this" mode and 
kinda paged out on me.

PKG-INFO isn't used in PyPI at the moment - it crafts its own HTTP request. At 
the moment I believe it's only used as a file in the source distributions. 
You might want to ask the broader comminuty whether anyone's actually using 
it for anything.

Having said that, IIRC DOAP is a bit of a shift from the actual meta-data spec 
of the PKG-INFO - that has more ramifications. As I mentioned, I still 
haven't looked into it in detail.
