Naturally, I find this an interesting project. I'm constantly working with open source projects, and digging through webpages and so on to find CVS repositories, maintainer contact info, and the like just isn't my idea of fun. This project could resolve all that by describing the information in a nice, easy way that's standardized, so you can then use RDF tools to parse it.
I didn't really get involved in the project until stork created the DOAP-a-matic, which let me create what edd has labelled as "adopter #1"'s DOAP file: SDLRoads. (It was later established that stork was adopter #0, typical for computer programmers with their 0 indexed arrays.)
Now, in addition to the creator, there is a viewer, which uses XSLT to format the page: DOAP-viewer. From the #rdfig chump:

In addition, stork created a bookmarklet. If you want to pull the information about a project up using DOAP, it's simple: just click the button, and it will open right up.
To use, just drag the following link to your browser bookmarks bar, and click on any page which uses a DOAP <link> tag in the page, which will then lead you to the viewer.
All in all, the project has come together very quickly, with a lot of pushing along from stork. I want to thank stork for getting me interested in this, edd for coming up with it, and everyone else for supporting it.
