I'm working on a free research discovery tool meta.org. We're looking into ways to index the software packages list here
To do, I'll need to collect metadata about each package such as name, maintainer, title, description, link to code repository, citations etc.
1) Does Bioconductor provide software metadata in structured formats? for example, XML, JSON. It will be harder to 'scrape' info from this page https://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/ 2) Is there a programmatic access such as an API to get this type of data?
I checked https://github.com/Bioconductor but couldn't find what I need there.
Thank you for pointing me to the right direction.
