Re: [ba-ohs-talk] TouchGraph used on Langreiter.com

I am hoping the next release will include the topic maps stuff you and 
Murray Altheim are working on.  Is your new code reflected in the cvs now?    (01)

There is a nifty Java wiki (BSD license) at 
http://www.pastiche.org/wiki/RewritingWiki  (as I type this, the site won't 
open).  It downloads as a .war file (just drop that into Tomcat and away 
you go).  Unzip the .war file and the source code is there.  It's about 65k 
download.  I think this would be pretty easy to 1) adapt to a database, and 
2) add TG.    (02)
