#VCS Autodiscovery

VCS structure auto-discovery through meta tags

#What and Why

This project holds the RFC for VCS Autodiscovery; meta tags that help software understand different software forges. Given a URL, such as:


Software can scrape <meta> tags in the <head> tag to learn how to clone or navigate this project. These tags look like:

<meta name="vcs" content="git">

<meta name="vcs:clone"


Read the latest standard in RFC.md
