Considering that there are several ways to do that, I'm trying to gather 
links to existing tools, search engines, repositories, forums, mailing 
lists and editors, etc. on one web page [1] to avoid repetition of 
multiple emails, each containing one link to an individual service.
It's a public wiki page, so if someone feels like updating it, he or 
she's welcome.
The idea is to offer pathes for the data publishers towards the terms 
they need, be they reused terms from existing ontologies or terms minted 
by the publishers themselves.
