Dear all,

hereby I would like to introduce an environment we created to facilitate 
collaborative vocabulary development: VoCol.

The idea is basically to enable collaboration between domain experts and 
knowledge engineers in large vocabulary development efforts.

On the front-end, domain experts can contribute using a plain-vanilla 
web browser, while at the back-end, as many tasks as possible are 
automated. For example: GitHub is used for version management and issue 
tracking, rapper for validating the new versions and if possible, a new 
vocabulary is published in a human-friendly (schemaorg) and 
machine-comprehensible version. Yet, any module can be exchanged or 
removed at any time if necessary.

We are currently using this environment for the development of a 
mobility vocabulary (MobiVoc) and are planning to employ it in two other 
initiatives in the near future.

Since it is only our first version, we are happy for any kind of feedback!
