[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from lawson

Thanks for clearing this up. Someone else has pointed out that creating
and editing projects is broken at the moment. This is in our queue to fix.
Should be in production in a few days.


Your assumption is correct, you do not have to be an admin on an ontology
to update the project that refers to this ontology.

Hi Ray,


No, I am referring to the VectorBase project on the page:

I want to ensure that this has contact details and that it is associated
with the ontologies that we use to annotate.


Kitsos is the admin for the ontologies that he and his group have
developed (TGMA, MIRO, IDOMAL, IDODEN etc.) and that is the correct thing.
My assumption is that you do not need to be admin on an ontology to assert
a projects use of that ontology.

To be clear, I think that you are referring to an ontology rather than a
project. Currently "Louis" is both the admin and the contact for this
ontology. I can add you to the list of admins (Louis can also do so) and
then you will both be able to edit the ontology information. Just give me
your BioPortal username.

I work as part of the VectorBase project and wanted to update our usage of
various ontologies. I can see that we exist as a project at the moment -
how can I edit this rather than create a new project. The Louis group
(part of VectorBase) are stilled involved with ontology development but
this may not continue beyond 2014. I want to ensure that there are contact
details for the project beyond this and update/document our usage of
various ontologies.
