If we are using RDF as data model in the system, how should it be stored?
Requirements: Scalable, fast retrieval and search, simple/understandable ...

Some links from http://www.w3.org/RDF/#developers
 * A survey comparing six storage implementations http://www.w3.org/2001/05/rdf-ds/DataStore
 * Five approaches to RDBMS schemas for RDF storage http://www-db.stanford.edu/~melnik/rdf/db.html

Query formats/languages
 * rdfDB uses a simple, yet powerful query language - http://web1.guha.com/rdfdb/query.html
 * "Metalog is a next-generation query system for metadata based on RDF" http://www.w3.org/RDF/Metalog/
 * ...


Some storage related posts on the our mailing list:
 * Use JDO (insert archive URL here)
 * Use any backend, JDBC, LDAP, Files, whatever... (insert archive URL here)
 * ...

 * For storage/persistance, use plugin arcitecture with possible chaining, see:

A related issue is how to map existing RDBMS data to RDF:
 * There is a short article about it at http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/RDB-RDF.html
Maybe this is a good way to merge from other versions of Meinds (or Jive) to the
RDF based meinds version.

This is a part of the temporary Meinds Notebook in the project Meinds
