Jim,

The project I was referring to is Open Ontology Repository [1]. This is an 
open source project based on BioPortal which hosts many biology 
ontologies. There is a sandbox server [2]. I saw a panel discussion on 
this at SemTech 2010 [3]. I don't think they have a public instance up.

To see what this would look like, go to BioPortal [4]. This is a nice web 
interface to the terms in multiple ontologies.

We could look for or wait for a public instance, or we could host the repo 
on our OSLC server. I poked around the OOR project. They seem to have a 
lot of meetings, but I could not find a place to download the code. The 
BioPortal code is real, but I'm not sure what shape the OOR code is in. I 
am following up with a project lead.

Hi Arthur,

Just a reminder to dig up that repository you thought might be appropriate 
for our OSLC use to publish our vocabularies.

Thanks,
