Dear all,

I have included in the wiki a review of ContentSVN and Collaborative 
Protégé, the two tools mentioned for collaborative ontology development:

The two approaches are quite different; in a nutshell, ContentSVN is 
mostly focused in what happens between ontology changes and 
Collaborative Protégé is focused on the annotation and discussion of 

What I don't know is up to what extent we do need any of them.

The plans in the wiki are to go for a single editor, so a collaborative 
environment maybe is not needed.
Besides, to document and discuss ontology changes we can use the wiki 
and/or the mailing list (also mentioned in the wiki). If we just want to 
identify changes between releases, this can be enough if we follow some 
structured way of documenting changes.

Kind regards,


Dr. Raúl García Castro
