Sandro et al,

I would very much favour the wiki page approach. The reason why I
created the

http://esw.w3.org/topic/SemanticWebTools

page over a year ago was exactly because maintaining that list (I had
the same problem with the RDF list) became a hurdle. Over the year the
wiki page worked well, I had to get some spam out only once or twice,
and that is it. There will be life after the OWL WG, so better to
anticipate...

Whether the OWL list would be part of that one, or a separate list is a
detail, I am pretty much o.k. with either way.
