  They are at http://rpmfind.net/linux/RDF/

 Note that there is one large index which actuelly get downloaded
but most of the database used by the rpmfind tool is actually a large
set of interconnected RDF documents (375 MBytes of small RDF files).

However they are far from perfect, I wouldn't call them conformant
(shame on me) the syntax need revamping, but
the service is functionning and I'm a bit short on time w.r.t 
upgrading the software. Also this kind of testcase is useful to
learn what coding mistakes to avoid: I didn't properly coded the
namespace analysis which makes the backward compatibility with
existing installed clients difficult in case of upgrade <grin/>.
