Hi Sam,

Good you came across clerezza.

some of the history. The original code has been donated by Trialox
which uses clerezza as the foundation for their CMS system, which is
in use e.g. for By now most contributors are
not associated to Trialox. Clerezza is not meant to be a CMS but a
platform to make it easy to build web-applcation for the semantic and
the social web.

to try again)
- Have an "app-store" on the website
- Better integrate the documentation and tutorials
- As a longer term vision we've discussed a versioning triple stores
with a transaction oriented api where a transaction yields to a new
version (see

Do you think distributed OSGi could be integrated in Clerezza? Is
there a connection between SemWeb and distributed OSGi?
