SALIS is a repository of open source software along with metadata information. The objective is to empower the Indian academic and developer community to make informed decisions while using open source software. To enable organization and retrieval of the information stored in the repository, a modified CCS (Computing Classification Scheme) classification scheme by the ACM (Association of Computing Machinery) was used. Since a sizeable section of the end users community were familiar with the USPTO classification scheme, a need was felt to classify the software by USPTO scheme also. Instead of classifying by two schemes it was decided to have a mapping or a concordance between the two schemes so that the classification takes place semi-automatically. The approach used to derive a concordance between two diverse classification schemes is described in this paper.
