[bioontology-support] Submit ontology to BioPortal

I was trying to upload the new version of the ontology, Parasite 
Lifecycle Ontology ( at 
the Bioportal site, but it doesn't give me an option of uploading a new 
version.  I can upload a new ontology though.  Can you please suggest 
how to do this?  I am not the person who uploaded the first version.  Do 
we have to use his login information to do so?  He graduated a few 
months ago so no longer a member of our team.

>> We submitted Parasite Lifecycle Ontology (PLO) v. 0.1 to NCBO which was a very preliminary version.  Now we revised the ontology, added a lot more concept, used BFO as an upper level ontology, and named it as Ontology for Parasite Lifecycle (OPL).  How should I upload the new version; i.e., as a new ontology or an updated version of PLO, which will now be called OPL?
