In Taiwan, draft legislation have to publish to Executive Yuan Gazette. The link is http://data.gov.tw/node/5959. In order to reduce the loading time of the data, it is compressed as ZIP file. Actually the data is XML format after unzipping it. Therefore, it meets open format and bulk download.
In addition, the Legialative Yuan of Taiwan also opens legislation data on the website(http://data.ly.gov.tw/getds.action?id=20). The data is open licensed, and meets open format and bulk download.
we will look into these URLs together with our reviewers and will get back to you in the coming days.
All the best
I have seen that the link works now again (this was the reason why we could not assess the initial submission).
Problem is: at this URL I find indeed an XML file, but I’m wondering whether it meets our minimum requirements of naming draft bill content, bill author and bill status. In fact, I’m wondering whether the link actually contains draft bills or acts.
Maybe you can help interpreting the XML structure (the use of Chinese characters in the XML file makes it tough too).
Also, I see that the Legislative Yuan of Taiwan indeed publishes parts of the required data. Do you know if there is a dataset that can be linked to this dataset here: http://data.ly.gov.tw/getds.action?id=20, so that I could associate bill content with the bill number and name? Is bill content contained in the doc URL?
After passing the proceedings of the Legislative Yuan, the draft legislation has to publish to Executive Yuan Gazette.
