We will also have another version of BioPortal installed and  
maintained as an Open Ontology Repository [1]. That would be  
completely domain independent. So, if your issue is using a non- 
biomedical repository, you might be able to just use the OOR. It is  
literally a matter of a couple of weeks before that is up and running.  
And you won't need to install and maintain your own version of  

Just a thought.
