+1 on any git-based tool recommendation + N3/Turtle

On documentation & publishing:

Depending on your team, there are very likely knowledge engineers, 
domain experts (and probably users) with some knowledge in modeling 
things and those completely without. I would recommend in the beginning 
to take the time to identify in which way different potential 
contributers might be able to engage in the development process and with 
the ontology itself. This includes presenting different tools to 
edit/visualize the ontology and explain them thoroughly the Turtle 
syntax if that is your weapon of choice. To keep the threshold as low as 
possible, I would further recommend to you tools which offer a web 
interface. The goal needs to be to provide anyone with a mild interest 
in your ontology an easy way to engage with it. Good luck!

Out of curiosity, could you give an example?
