    I am currently working on modifying a system that I
    didn't build. And, alas, the original development team
    is long gone. I can't count the number of times I have
    wished for a repository for application-level
    knowledge nuggets. I don't care so much about the
    language-level knowlege, but I really want to know how
    things work and how they are inter-related. It seems
    like a good application for a fairly simple ontology
    (nouns based on the domain model, classes, methods,
    etc?) and assertions (RDF?).

    The Apache project has one. Whether it is the one you
    are remembering, I don't know. Click on "Faq-O-Matic"
