Hi Pieter,

Thanks for the answer.

I don't necessarily need SPARQL. The search can be a simple one, like
you can see in many sites: a form to fill with the text you search and a
few other fields to help filter the results (by date and some predefined

I only need to be able to export the data in RDF, but the database
itself can be in any format (as long as it's good for textual search).

You say that CKAN only takes care of the meta-data of datasets? It's not
suitable to search for data inside of them? Neither to visualize/export
parts of the data itself?
Then maybe it's not the right tool for this case... That's sad, I was
hopping to use it.
Do you know another open source project that would fit better?
