Dear all,

we are preparing a switch from the mappings wiki 
(http://mappings.dbpedia.org) to another ontology editor and started to 
collect requirements/tools here:


We already have a demo for Webprotege thanks to Ismael Rodriguez, our 
GSoC student. As we are lacking time and resources, we will probably 
only consider editors with a running demo, so the community can try it.

Our main interest is of course to manage the DBpedia core ontology and 
push any mappings to other ontologies in separate files. So we provide a 
core version for demo purposes created with:
rapper -g dbpedia_2016-10.nt | grep -v 
 > dbo_no_mappings.nt

(I hope that the regex didn't kick out anything essential or broke any 

We would be very happy, if anyone from the semantic web community would 
make a demo with their favorite editor and add a link to the Google Doc 
and post a short message on the DBpedia discussion list[1] or on slack 
https://dbpedia.slack.com/ .

This would help us to make a more informed decision. The next DBpedia 
Dev online meeting will be on 2nd of August 14:00 (each first Wednesday 
per month). Presentations of editors are also welcome. We will also 
discuss the editor question during the DBpedia meeting in Amsterdam, 
co-located with SEMANTiCS on 14.9. 

Thank you for your help!
