Hi Nicolas, hi Camille,

I really welcome this and hope that the introduction of this will lower the bar 
for those who wish (or currently don't wish) to annotate their models.

Just wondered what the roadmap is / would be for implementing web services? Web 
services down to the third level (i.e. for the specific GO term) would be 
fantastic. What are the current plans?

Cheers / Prost,
