Distributed Semantic MediaWiki (DSMW) is an extension of Semantic MediaWiki (SMW). It allows to create a network of SMW servers that share common semantic wiki pages. DSMW manages synchronisation of shared semantic pages and ensures CCI consistency as in Git or Mercurial. CCI stands for Causality, Convergence, Intentions. DSMW provides to SMW nearly the same features as a Distributed Version Control systems:

  • you can work in isolation with your own server, test some stuff,
  • publish changes to your own DSMW public feeds,
  • you can also subscribe to any remote public DSMW feeds.

By this way, users can implement their own dataflows and represents any kind of dataflow oriented processes such as edit/review/publish.
