[bioontology-support] Questions about eagle-i on bioportal.

Hi Carlo, 

If the ontology is set-up to load from a URL, BioPortal will check the contents of the file at that URL nightly and if a file with new content is found that file will be loaded. It looks like there were some changes in the structure of the ERO SVN directory in between when these two ERO versions were released, which may have caused some issues. Which entries of the "03/02/2012" would you like removed?

As far as displaying "dc:" at the root, I do see that in the 03/02/2012 version and in other OWL ontologies. Paul, do you know if this is something that can be filtered out of the display?
