Yes, of course. I was just informed by Dave Raynolds that data.gov.uk is about to host their own version. Great news :) 

My conversion was done in early January and basically aimed for a cleaner version of the data (cleaner tags, cleaner dates) to run experiments with. I am looking at the integration of records and agencies across catalogues, which boils down to weighting and correlating content from related tags, titles, descriptions etc.

Thanks again for the update :)

Yes, just to say, in case you haven't seen the data is already
available in preview linked data form here:


With an official version to go up as its own dataset on data.gov.uk
some time soonish.

There's also this documentation here:
