Dear all,

As many of you may know, AGROVOC is a controlled vocabulary available in more
than 17 languages.
It is available online at: http://www.fao.org/agrovoc

We already created a SKOS version of the thesaurus (I can provide reference
if needed), but we just published the exposure of AGROVOC data in SKOS
dynamically starting from AGROVOC Concept URIs:  e.g.
click on the "RDF/XML" link in the top of the page.

This will allow the creation of SKOS dynamically and therefore be updated
when new languages or other elements are added to the knowledge base.

This SKOS output is a first release, I wish to add scope notes and other
information. Will do this asap.
