Dear List,

I hope this subject is appropriate for the list. In one of our  projects 
we want to develop a vocabulary repository (using SKOS
of course!).

One of its tasks should be to make it possible for external programs to 
access the repository contents by means
of some - preferably standard - API.

The last standard I seem to find is the "SKOS API" 
(http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/Europe/reports/thes/skosapi.html).
I do find some (scattered) references of people having used it and some 
suggestions for improvement of this "SKOS API".

Can any of you tell me whether there is development going on w.r.t. SKOS 
service/API definitions?

(The most relevant link in the SkosDev/Toolshed page :"Nikki Rogers' and 
Dave Beckett's demo SKOS Web Service client in Python, SKOS Web Service 
in Java <http://thes.ilrt.bris.ac.uk/demos/get>." seems to be down at 
the moment and the references seem to imply that they use the "SKOS API")

Thanks,

Lourens van der Meij
