    Abstract

    The collaborative development of web ontologies is an important topic being actively researched. In this paper, we present a set of tools that facilitate collaborative development of web ontologies using distributed version control systems. The main purpose of these tools is to replace inefficient built-in diff and three-way merge tools, which rely on text representation rather than on ontology structure. Being based on popular distributed version control systems, owl2vcs can be easily integrated into popular issue trackers.
