Hi Ted,

I worked before with OpenLinkSW Virtuoso, but I see Virtuoso more like a 
database system + a lot of features. I don't see the "content management 
system" APIs of virtuoso, such as end-user management, tagging, rating, 
etc.... where are these APIs?

can you point me to the system doc where I can find the features and map 
them into this matrix?
http://www.cmsmatrix.org/matrix/cms-matrix?func=search

We are especially interested in web-pages of the virtuoso documentation 
that we can link each of these lines (taken from cmsmatrix.org) to a 
webpage describing where we can find it in virtuoso:
