    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;What is in this release?&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;In this release you will find data about software distributed and/or crafted publicly on the Internet. You will find information about its development, its distribution and its relationship with other software included as a dependency. You will not find any information about the individuals who create and maintain these projects.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Further information and documentation on this data set can be found at;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;For enquiries please contact;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This dataset contains seven csv files:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Projects&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;A project is a piece of software available on any one of the 33 package managers supported by;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Versions&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;A version is an immutable published version of a Project from a package manager. Not all package managers have a concept of publishing versions, often relying directly on tags/branches from a revision control tool.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Tags&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;A tag is equivalent to a tag in a revision control system. Tags are sometimes used instead of Versions where a package manager does not use the concept of versions. Tags are often semantic version numbers.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Dependencies&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Dependencies describe the relationship between a project and the software it builds upon. Dependencies belong to Version. Each Version can have different sets of dependencies. Dependencies point at a specific Version or range of versions of other projects.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Repositories&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;A repository represents a publically accessible source code repository from either, or Repositories are distinct from Projects, they are not distributed via a package manager and typically an application for end users rather than component to build upon.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Repository dependencies&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;A repository dependency is a dependency upon a Version from a package manager has been specified in a manifest file, either as a manually added dependency committed by a user or listed as a generated dependency listed in a lockfile that has been automatically generated by a package manager and committed.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Projects with related Repository fields&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This is an alternative projects export that denormalizes a projects related source code repository inline to reduce the need to join between two data sets.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Licence&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This dataset is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International Licence.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This licence provides the user with the freedom to use, adapt and redistribute this data.
