Re: Using URIs in OWL imports?

Ok, Protégé 5.5 works fine for me too.  Thank you!

I'll try upgrading and see if that fixes it.  Or perhaps my ancient OS is at fault, but that's more complicated to fix due to my employer's IT policies.
    The imports are not the problem because they were only added yesterday; they're actually a workaround for the issues I'm having with the w3id URI.  I am in the middle of a development sprint and I needed to get unblocked; I hadn't realized it might take a week to get a response on this list.  I maintain purls for other ontologies there and despite all the various issues with (which is why I initially chose in the first place), I at least knew that they work in Protégé. 
    I can look into providing a file with a .rdf extension.  The ontology is implemented with the Ontology Development Kit which defaults to building .owl and .obo files.

        It might be because was misbehaving last week and you also import some ontologies from there?
        Or just a guess, but it might be because the redirected

        is returned by GitHub as 
        Content-Type: text/plain
        What if you have a *.rdf extension on GitHub side so it is sent as application/rdf+xml then it might help other consumers of your ontology.
        It should however not have affected Protege as it's OWLAPI tends to try every possible RDF de-serialization as a fallback.
