If we're going to serve the ontology from another site, there's no reason to maintain two duplicate source files in the repo. I vote for deleting the rdfxml file, and just using the n3 file to generate it for serving.

If we are to handle the conneg on bibliontology.com, it may make sense to manage more than one serializations, no?

Just pull the repo to the server, convert the n3 file to rdfxml, and serve
them both?

Will check that when I will get to the conneg of the thing... I want it has simple as possible :)

Will leave it like that for now. So, XML and N3 versions should be updated. I don't want to have to change the files manually on the conneg server manually each time a change is being made, this will be much faster to do directly on GitHub for now.

To clarify (say foe future reference), my proposal is based on two
assumptions:

  1. That the XML can be automatically converted with a post pull hook on the
    server. Not sure.
  2. That it is bad form (extra work for everyone, with extra room for
    mistakes) to maintain two parallel source files.

So I'll just point out WRT to my item 2; again, for future reference ...

I found a tiny typo in the description for the ontology ("describe" should be "describes"). In order to fix it, I had to edit three separate files. Not good.
