Hello My, (01)
The topic you are bringing up would probably be more appropriate for
the [ontolog-forum] list.
The [ontology-summit] list, in contrast, is typically used every year
to support the 3-month Summit's themed discussion every year (and not
for general discussion.) (02)
For anyone which is not already an Ontolog member, details about
joining the Ontolog community (for which the [ontolog-forum] mailing
list serves as the community's discussion workspace,) please see:
Thanks & regards. =ppy (04)
