In this paper, we propose a novel approach to the problem of integrating code forges based on metadata (e.g., programming language, database, intended audience, operating system), similar software projects and software developers. We review the current problems in integrating metadata of different code forges and argue that Semantic Web technologies are suitable for representing and integrating knowledge contained inside these code forges. Further, we show the advantages of interlinking metadata of software projects to other relevant data sources on the Web, which will enable querying more information from the Web. Moreover, we compute the overlapping between code forges based on similar software developers and argue the benefit of interlinking similar software developers and software projects across different code forges through examples.
