First, I'd like to clarify that the current production version of
BioPortal only supports CVS based ontology auto-pull. Our next release,
due in production in about ten days, does introduce support for SVN
Below are the artifacts we will need for including the repository into our
1. SVN Access URL with the full path to the ontology file location
2. Username/password (if any)
3. Full path (in the repository) to a text file that stores ontology
metadata in the following format (also, see the attached sample):
title Common Anatomy Reference Ontology
status Discussion and review
home CARO Wiki|http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/CARO:Main_Page
contact Melissa Haendel obo-anatomy lists.sourceforge.net
description The Common Anatomy Reference Ontology (CARO) is being
developed to facilitate interoperability between existing anatomy
ontologies for different species, and will provide a template for building
new anatomy ontologies. CARO will be described in Anatomy Ontologies for
Bioinformatics: Principles and Practice Albert Burger, Duncan Davidson and
Richard Baldock (Editors)
I recommend pasting this snippet into an editor that lets you view the
tabs, spaces and line breaks so you can distinguish between the various
delimiters used in the file. These are important for proper parsing of
the values on our end.
Let me know if you have questions.

Very much interested to see the Software Ontology. Has the location of
this ontology been included in your SVN repository file for the
***Misha, can you confirm if anything additional to the repository
file is needed to include this ontology in the automatic pull?
James, do you have mappings generated for the Software Ontology? Also,
would it make sense to load this as a 'view' of EFO - is this a subset
of EFO or does this extend from the software class in EFO? I can talk
to via Skype about views further if you like.
