I said that I'd do a little digging on IkeWiki. It is downloadable from:


There is also a demo installation that you can (try to) play with at:


The main features is that you can create wiki pages for classes and properties, add subClass relation and various axioms (eg FunctionalProperty, TRansitiveProperty, SymmetricProperty etc) and export the results as RDF/OWL in varing degrees granularity.

Haven't played with it enough to work out how one would manage a group 'workflow' leading to concensus defn and whether that ammounts to personal discipline (I guess it would given wiki-wars) or whether the tool animates a workflow.

I'll probably look at it some more. According to my colleage (Steve Battle) this is the only wiki platform that he has come across that is oriented around community ontology building.
