NOTE that this is basically a placeholder to give mentors an idea of how they might format a section of their own. This may actually survive as an idea to present to students, but--by way of expectation management--expect that it will disappear.
Eclipse Dash is a place where the community itself can collaborate on tools for community awareness and collaboration in support of our ultimate objective of committer quality and cooperation. This is very much a research project as we are not entirely sure what these tools will be.
Here are some of our project ideas:
- Update the IP cartoons and move them to the handbook bug 498290
Eclipse RDF4J is a framework for scalable processing of linked data in RDF. This includes parsing, writing, scalable database storage, reasoning and querying (using the SPARQL query language). RDF4J offers a set of Java libraries as well as a fully-fledged database server and several client UI tools to interact with RDF data. We're a small team who are open to fresh ideas and new contributions. People interested in doing a project with RDF4J are invited to browse through our issue tracker and look for anything marked "help wanted", or to submit their own proposal.
Here are some project ideas:
- Extend the SPARQL QueryRenderer utility to support more advanced SPARQL 1.1 features (subqueries, aggregates, etc.) #496
- Extend/replace the SPARQL QueryBuilder to a more user-friendly API and allowing more advanced SPARQL 1.1 features #71
- Add support for the SHACL (Shapes Constraint Language), a declarative language for specifying data validation constraints on RDF database #743
