Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a modular extension of the MediaWiki software that powers many wikis and this site, adding Semantic Web technologies for organising and sharing data. I can safely say that most of SMW has been written by myself, but Denny Vrandecic, S Page, and many others also have contributed much code and support to the overall system.
Documentation and support
For futher information about SMW go to semantic-mediawiki.org. Support enquiries should be send to the Semantic MediaWiki user mailinglist.
Please do not send general support request to my personal email address. I will work through open requests on the official list whenever I have the time.
Bugs and feature requests for Semantic MediaWiki should be filed at MediaZilla.
