Hi Bob

I certainly know this URI like anybody on this list, and I pretty well know
that there is a bunch of classes and properties used to describe DBpedia
resources, in the http://dbpedia.org/ontology/ namespace, such as
http://dbpedia.org/ontology/birthPlace

At this specific URI I get the following description in n3

@prefix rdf:    <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> .
@prefix dbpedia-owl:    <http://dbpedia.org/ontology/> .
@prefix owl:    <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#> .
dbpedia-owl:birthPlace    rdf:type    owl:ObjectProperty .
@prefix rdfs:    <http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#> .
dbpedia-owl:birthPlace    rdfs:domain    dbpedia-owl:Person ;
    rdfs:range    dbpedia-owl:Place ;
    rdfs:label    "birth place"@en ;
    rdfs:comment    "where the person was born"@en .

Which is cool. I have description of a property, and reference to domain and
range classes, so I can follow my nose from there

But at http://dbpedia.org/ontology/ itself I get

@prefix rdf:    <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> .
@prefix owl:    <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#> .
<http://dbpedia.org/ontology/>    rdf:type    owl:Ontology ;
    owl:versionInfo    "Version 3.5"@en .

Missing a triple such as

<http://dbpedia.org/ontology/>    rdfs:isDefinedBy    foo

I've got at least a version number :)

So where is the RDF file containing the whole ontology?
