Any plans to resume RDF data updates? Please, please?

I am grateful to all of you at Curlie for taking on the torch from DMOZ and continuing in the quest to organize the evolving web.
When DMOZ was operating, their RDF data dumps were an invaluable resource.
I was wondering if there are any plans to resume data dumps for Curlie too (RDF, XML, JSON, CSV files, ...)?

Best regards,
Jeyendran

Yes, there are plans to resume data dumps in some form, it may take some time to do that though.

Yes, you are not forgotten! Imo it's the next thing in the pipeline.

Just putting a friendly reminder that we would love to see downloadable rdf dumps again :)

If you need hosting-mirrors or development help please just contact me right away!
If there is any technical help needed to bring this up again, I'd also more than happy to help.

Editors can offer their help in the Editor Forum at Curlie.

That said this is also an issue about the value of producing data dumps.

what do you mean by "value of producing data dumps"?
the cost of hosting vs the demand and the value provided?

I can't be specific, but we have not unlimited resources and producing downloadable data has not yet been a top priority.

Hello, Merry Christmas to all at Curlie!
Here's hoping the New Year will bring joy to all of us who have been hoping to get RDF data dumps from Curlie!
Peace and Love.

Some editors are looking forward to the return of tools which use the RDF. Although I have never used the RDF directly, there were editor-only tools which used the RDF which I miss.
