Dear Colleagues,    (01)

It would be helpful to provide identify the requirements for an Ontology 
Again a requirements wiki page is needed to keep track of our 
requirements gathering efforts.    (02)

Here is an initial list from a quick brain dump (note: Repo = Repository):    (03)

    * Allows authors to create ontology content and store it in a
      "local" repo
    * Allow communities to manage a shared "community" repo
    * Provide a "root" repo that keeps tracks of community repos and
      provides the most universal ontology content and metadata
    * Supports a [maven] like distributed model where content from
      "local" repo may be "deployed" to the "community" repo or the
      "root" repo
    * Allows standard and extensible metadata to be associated with
      Ontology elements
    * Supports flexible search mechanism where domain and community
      specific parameterized queries may be defined for metadata based
    * Supports flexible subscription and notification feature to keep
      interested parties notified of changes to artifacts
    * Supports automatic cataloging of published artifacts
    * Supports automatic rule-based validation of submitted artifacts
    * Maintains change history for all artifacts in repo
    * Supports a set of minimal authentication mechanisms (e.g. Basic,
      HTTPS mutual, OpenId)
    * Provide fine grained role-based access control and authorization
      over all actions
    * Support seamless search over multiple repos (local + community,
      local + community + root, other...)    (04)
