> Dear BioPortal support team,

> We have installed an instance of BioPortal to store ontologies for our

> Unfortunately, the BioPortal revision we have taken (revision 1875,

> BioPortal 2.5, but deferred that for three reason: 1) the content

> current BioPortal. 3) Our main developer, Slava, who takes care for  
> the
> BioPortal installation figured out that some (for us fundamental) bug
> apparently hasn't been fixed in the latest version: RESTful DELETE and
> PUT does not work.

> Slava says that to fix this bug is very easy and so he did it on a  
> local

> to
> our current revision (1875, /tags/1014) so that we do not need to
> migrate content and that uses still the same REST API.

> Our problem is that we cannot figure out from the revision logs which

> We would be very grateful for any clarification!
