[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Evidence codes Parsing Failed

Hello BioPortal,

I am the developer of ECO, the Evidence Ontology. The other night I 
modified some of the metadata here:

Since then, I have been getting a periodic email from BioPortal noting a 
parsing failure. I am not sure why, but perhaps if I explained my goal, 
you would be so kind as to help me get ECO back online at BioPortal...

Not long ago we gave ECO its own development site, at Google Code rather 
than SourceForge. My goal was for BioPortal to pull the ontology from 
now on from here:
So I changed the "ontology location" on the BioPortal metadata page to 
that. Is this not correct?

We also have a subversion repository checkout, with instructions for 
checking out here:

I would be grateful for any help you could offer in suggesting proper 
settings so that BioPortal parses ECO from our Google Code site.

Many thanks,
