An alternative approach is to generate codemeta.json automatically from a Maneage'd project's own 'metadata.conf' and Git history. But will need to add all the possibly missing entries of codemeta.json that aren't in our own 'metadata.conf'.

I am just thinking out loud here, so please share your thoughts if you have any :-).

To help in preservation, discovery, reuse, and attribution of software, one of the most robust solutions so far is the CodeMeta project, which is also supported by Software Heritage, ASCL and many other initiatives, like the FORCE11. CodeMeta uses the JSON linked data (JSON-LD) notation to store metadata about the software project.

To have a CodeMeta entry in Maneage, I just defined a new 'codemeta' branch in the 'project-dev' of Gitlab. As a first commit in that branch, I added a first draft of the CodeMeta information for Maneage. This has been automatically generated by the online CodeMeta generator.

This is still not yet complete. For example, it has no copyright statement itself, the description of Maneage is not very complete, and some entries may be missing or incomplete, but its just a starting point to slowly fill it, in due time.

Once written, we should also add documentation in the customization checklist for Maneage users to replace the 'codemeta.json' file with their own 'codemeta.json'.
