Subject:    [ontolog] ontology tools and an ontology repository?
Source:     http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/ontolog-forum/2002-11/msg00008.html  

We are considering one possibility for our site: an ontology repository,
wherein folks can register ontologies and/or build ontologies using
Web-enabled tools, possibly hosted at our site.

So some questions:

1. How do you feel about:
our site supporting an ontology repository?

Yes No

our site supporting a Web-enabled ontology tool (for developing ontologies)?

Yes No

none of the above.

Not a good idea, because

Which ontology tools do you use?
Ontology tool I use/am familiar with
Can you characterize the tools: i.e., Web-enabled, ontology
languages supported, cost/licensing, POCs, experience, etc.
Do you know of a tool provider who might support such a public
effort, hosted on our site?
Candidate provider

Which ontology languages (knowledge representation languages) should
be the standard(s) for the ontologies?
(Some examples: Ontolingua/KIF, Common Logic, OKBC, CycL, RDF/S,
DAML+OIL, OWL, etc.)
Additional Comments?
