LexCraft, run by Cornell’s Legal Information Institute, is a Wiki where developers can “record, refine, and promulgate best practices for electronic legal information publication. It’s a place to note both big things (like the OAI4Courts standard, now under development on LexCraft) and small things (like … everything you [need to] know about US Code section numbering).”
“LexCraft is about crafting things with legal text.” It’s “a place to look for [or share things like] a stopword list for legislation in English, a writeup on a search engine specifically adapted for legal text, or the profile of the research group that developed it, or a bibliography of papers on text retrieval as it specifically applies to legal text. So it’s part cookbook, part collection of profiles and bibliographies, part code library…”
