This looks cool. I noticed that you've implemented
OpenGuides::RDF::Reader - would it make sense for this to be
part of the
OpenGuides distribution, do you think? I'm wary to increase the number
of tiny CPAN modules that OpenGuides uses.
I had a reason for keeping it separate - that it doesn't need OpenGuides to be
installed to use it (and that process - installing OpenGuides - can be quite tortuous for
the unwary). It could be used by mapping sites, or indeed anyone else wanting to making
sense of our metadata.
If you feel it belongs inside the OpenGuides distro, include it by all means. But I still
would like to provide a separate distro of this module that doesn't need the main OG
kit installing. I am willing to listen to others' opinions on this though.
