[HELPWANTED] clean up vocabulary usage
Currently, our "NC" vocabulary is a pile of ad-hoc hacks that have evolved over time. We need to go on a crusade to formalize this and publish it. I volunteer to start.

sigh. this'll have to wait.

Is there anything in particular you need cleaned up, or is this just a generic request? I can certainly help with verifying consistency and syntax...
what we need is for somebody to 1. poke through the code base to catalogue the use of the http://home.netscape.com/NC-rdf# namespace. Here's a starter list: http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/search?string=home.netscape.com%2FNC-rdf%23 2. Optionally write an RDF/XML schema for that catalogue. 3. identify places where use of a well-known vocabulary (e.g., Dublin Core) would be more appropriate 4. file bugs on components to fix specific problems identified in (3)
I have *no* idea, what you mean with tasks 1-3.
I did some poking around to generate a preliminary list of resources in the NC-rdf# namespace, and the list is somewhat daunting -- it's close to 300 items long (and I can't guarantee I didn't miss any, in fact it's likely). There are a few issues with capitalization, producing redundant elements ("Name" versus "name", "MIME-Type" v. "MIME-Types" v. "MIME-types"). Close to a third of the elements appear to be supported by custom datasource code but are never actually used. A number of chunks of this list could probably be split off into self-contained schemas used by a single component. That might help impose some order on things, but this is still a pretty enormous task.

This seems like the kind of anal-retentive thing I'd be good at. What type of capitalization are we looking for? For example: rdf:http://home.netscape.com/NC-rdf#name or rdf:http://home.netscape.com/NC-rdf#Name
