    Name        : rest
    Product     : Fedora 20
    Version     : 0.7.93
    Release     : 1.fc20
    URL         : http://www.gnome.org
    Summary     : A library for access to RESTful web services
    Description :
    This library was designed to make it easier to access web services that
    claim to be "RESTful". A RESTful service should have urls that represent
    remote objects, which methods can then be called on. The majority of services
    don't actually adhere to this strict definition. Instead, their RESTful end
    point usually has an API that is just simpler to use compared to other types
    of APIs they may support (XML-RPC, for instance). It is this kind of API that
    this library is attempting to support.
