You could have the immutable project be separate and imported into the mutable project.

Subject: [protege-discussion] First question, and a test

Greetings, all.

This list doesn't seem to be as busy as advertised, so I'm doing a test of it, in addition to asking my first question.

I'm new to ontology, and to Protégé, so forgive my lack of foundation here.

As I would use Protégé, in a production software medical device product, ontology design and knowledge acquisition would occur on two very different time scales, and be performed by distinct groups of people.

In what mode of usage can Protégé provide an immutable view of an ontology (project), while allowing full mutation of knowledge (instances)? This sort of implies an authenticated multiuser environment, which the Protégé multi-user mode seems to support. But what I can't tell from the documentation is whether the policy mechanisms can support instance-only editing mode that I describe.

Thanks in advance...
