The paper develops software to exploit a protocol for collaborative ontology editing based on RDF and using a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networking architecture. The protocol implements a voting mechanism embedded into the RDF data itself, using a mixed initiative design for notification. This is implemented as extensions to an ontology browser called ONTORAMA1. The P2P approach is compared to the classic ontology editing approaches and the special requirements of the ontology editing environment are discussed.
