DESCRIPTIONDist::Inkt is a framework for writing your own distribution builder. It's a simple class that makes an empty directory, creates a MANIFEST file listing the contents of the directory, and then compresses it into a tarball.
Which seems pretty useless. However, it provides tonnes of hooks that can be used by roles applied to the class. This distribution provides a collection of roles that help you populate the distribution's metadata (META.json, Changes, etc) from DOAP.
The Straight DOAPSo what is DOAP? This explanation is lifted from Wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOAP>.
DOAP (Description of a Project) is an RDF Schema and XML vocabulary to describe software projects, in particular free and open source software.
It was created and initially developed by Edd Dumbill to convey semantic information associated with open source software projects.
It is currently used in the Mozilla Foundation's project page and in several other software repositories, notably the Python Package Index.
