>   The number of ontologies being built and made available for reuse  
> has increased steadily in the last few years. Semantic Web search  
> engines such as Swoogle and Watson currently index several tens of  
> thousands of them; there are also systems specifically designed to  
> support the publication of ontologies, e.g. Cupboard, NCBO  
> Bioportal, and ONKI. Some tools also support editing features, e.g.  
> Neologism, Knoodl. While being a foundation for the Semantic Web,  
> this new environment where ontologies are shared and interlinked  
> online also poses new challenges; fostering thus a number of  
> research projects aiming to understand, amongst others, ontology  
> reuse, storage, publication, versioning, quality control,  
> evaluation, retrieval and modularization. For instance, as part of  
> the EU NeOn project new tools supporting Knowledge Engineering in  
> the age of ?networked ontologies? have been developed, while in the  
> EU OASIS project approaches from software engineering and  
> formalization are now also being applied to inter-connect  
> ontologies. Moreover, despite initial efforts, ontology repositories  
> are hardly interoperable amongst themselves. Although sharing  
> similar aims (providing easy access to Semantic Web resources), they  
> diverge in the methods and techniques employed for gathering these  
> documents and making them available; each interprets and uses  
> metadata in a different manner. Furthermore, many features are still  
> poorly supported; for instance, modularization, versioning, and the  
> relationship between ontology repositories and ontology engineering  
> environments (editors) to support the entire ontology lifecycle.
