acknowledging code contributors

From: Mike Dean (
Date: 03/08/01

Something I forgot to suggest yesterday ...

Last week we agreed to add a list of contributors to the
software files (daml+oil.daml, daml+oil-ex.daml,
daml+oil-ex-dt.xsd, etc.) included in the DAML+OIL release.

Should we use Dublin Core [1] for the .daml files?  This
would provide the information in a more usable form, and
might be useful for other purposes as well.  A strawman set
of statements for inclusion in daml+oil.daml (with an
incomplete list of contributors) is given below.

DC experts, feel free to offer corrections or other advice.
In particular, I couldn't readily find a reference on how to
encode element qualifiers in RDF.
