I dont really want to be an admin. But I do want to push this group to eat some bibliographic dogfood
and make this list machine-readable and useful. Preferably JSON, but XML or RDF or whatever.
And please include attributes like number and format of records.
This is a tiny list right now, just provide a complete JSON or XML export at e.g.
Browsing around the CKAN site I see no API, no XML or JSON export, no feeds, nothing machine-readable.
I did find the gzipped dump file http://www.ckan.net/dump/ which is updated daily.
I would think the above features could be obtained by taking this daily dump and updating an image of it e.g.
within delicious or bibsonomy which might provide further functionality, visibility and API access.
