Hi Jonathan,

What I had in mind was more of a layout thing : on the CKAN homepage 
create two columns, one referencing the latest packages and one for the 
latests update on ontologies. This would have been associated with a 
distinctions between Packages and Ontologies in the menu bar (or some 
other keywords). But the idea of a group is fine. This gives a bit more 
visibility that just tags I guess.

> And might you be interested in helping to establish this?
Done ! I've created a group and added all the packages tagged with 
I'm not quite sure on what to do with these tags now. Shall we keep as a 
guidline that every ontology must be tagged as such and added to the group ?
Or shall the group replace the usage of the tag ?

I don't have anyone in mind so any volunteer is very welcome ! :-)
