Is there a description somewhere on what "OBO library" is?
Our agreement with OBO Foundry has always been that the OBO Foundry
site maintains the listing of OBO Foundry candidates -- the ones that
agree to try and conform to the principles and remove orthogonality,
etc. That site will not be an alternative general library site for
biomedical ontologies -- lest the user community gets confused any
more than it already is. Has there been a change in policy?
It seems quite confusing for users to understand the difference
between "NCBO library" and "OBO library". With the NCBO renewal due in
less than two months, it would be helpful to understand the difference
and the position.
