Azamat and Ron,    (01)

There are two separate issues:    (02)

  1. Developing the ground rules and policies for an ontology
     registry.    (03)

  2. Setting up a registry and maintaining the contributed ontologies.    (04)

These two goals can be pursued in parallel, but #1 should be started
first.  Then an implementation, #2, would give us further experience
and ideas about how to develop #1 further.    (05)

That could be a reasonable way to get started.    (07)

The goals, procedures, and ultimate product are very different
from the Wikipedia, so it would be better to keep it separate,
although some of the Wikipedia tools may be useful.    (09)

The people who subscribe to ontolog-forum have expressed a great
deal of knowledge about and interest in such issues.  They should
be encouraged to participate.  But the participants in the
registry project need not be identical to the set of subscribers
to ontolog-forum.    (011)
