Here is Akoma Ntoso’s description of the application:
Akoma Ntoso is a standard to define simple, technology-neutral representations of Parliamentary Documents for e-Parliament services in a Pan-African context and provides an enabling framework for the effective exchange of “machine readable” Parliamentary Documents such as legislation, debate record, minutes, etc.
Akoma Ntoso uses XML Schema to define the XML vocabulary and grammatical constraints of its documents, and makes it possible to either use the general schema or to use simpler custom subschemas as long as they produce valid Akoma Ntoso documents.
The Akoma Ntoso Subschema Generator can therefore be used to generate subschemas that are guaranteed to generate valid Akoma Ntoso documents by restricting the vocabulary to only those elements and attributes that are actually needed in specific situations.
