DRY is an acroynm for Don't Repeat Yourself. It describes a computer science principle of reducing repetition. In data publishing, this means publishing one canonical version of information โ€” preferably visibly โ€” rather than duplicating it inside the page (e.g. meta tags like OGP) or in separate side files (e.g. RSS).
