RRSAgent, make logs world-access

14:42:55 [Zakim]
agendum 2. "public comments on date/time (ACTION TomA)" taken up [from DanC]
14:43:18 [DanC]
Tom's proposal
14:43:37 [SimonR]
TomA sent the email message this morning.
14:44:04 [SimonR]
TomA says that Bjoern said that there weren't enough use-cases around datatyping.
14:44:09 [AndyS]
14:44:33 [AlbertoR]
new XPath has some
14:45:01 [AndyS]
14:45:09 [DaveB]
14:45:20 [DaveB]
fn:current-dateTime() as xs:dateTime
14:45:29 [DanC]
ACTION RobS: see if XQuery has a now() function
14:45:35 [SimonR]
Discussion about adding a function for accessing the current time. (Does XQuery have such a function?)
14:45:38 [AlbertoR]
yep - those actually - txs DaveB
14:46:13 [DaveB]
query has current-dateTime(), current-date() and current-time() as well as comparison functions
14:47:20 [SimonR]
TomA asks: is this question of time beyond our scope?
14:49:01 [Zakim]
14:49:17 [ericP]
welcome Farrukh
14:49:29 [FarrukhNajmi]
Hi ERic and colleagues
14:49:33 [DanC]
I see section 12 Testing Values $Revision: 1.55 $ of $Date: 2004/09/07 13:03:48 $
14:49:50 [SimonR]
AndyS is expecting the language to eventually support user-defined functions.
14:49:55 [DanC]
Zakim, next agendum
14:49:55 [Zakim]
agendum 3. "4.6 Additional Semantic Information, rules, construct (action Simon+Kendall)" taken up [from DanC]
14:51:06 [TomAdams]
SimonR, I will send my reply to Bjoern's comment email to him, copied to comments list, as is basically.
14:51:17 [DanC]
getting more concrete about 4.6 Kendall Clark
14:52:09 [SimonR]
Kendall summarizes
14:52:32 [ericP]
Tom, your mail to Wolper Cc'd public-rdf-dawg-comments-request (vs. the list itself). I've bounced it to the comments list (with a corrected Cc:) and it hwas been archived []
14:53:29 [ericP]
-1 on syntactic suger
14:53:43 [ericP]
(-.5, really)
14:54:54 [ericP]
q+ to talk about srql
14:55:00 [TomAdams]
14:55:26 [AndyS]
FYI: Other systems have special predicates: directSubClassOf
14:55:35 [AndyS]
No need for syntax
14:55:48 [DanC]
ack tom
14:56:36 [AndyS]
We such users as well - usually writing editors and the like
14:56:48 [kendall]
I would be happy with special predicates.
14:57:17 [SteveH]
special predicates can give unexpeted results to queries
14:57:19 [AndyS]
Also I agree with RobS - direct/indirect is complicated and subtle
14:57:23 [SteveH]
14:58:48 [DanC]
ack ericp
14:58:48 [Zakim]
ericP, you wanted to talk about srql
14:59:13 [SimonR]
Kendall is worried that we'll be doing with regard to inferencing is an actual mistake rather than a matter of taste.
14:59:28 [SimonR]
Danc exhorts people to submit use-cases for inferencing!
15:00:41 [SimonR]
Kendall points out UCs 2.3 and 2.11 as claiming that they motivate inferencing.
15:01:05 [TomAdams]
EricP, it's user error, not mail client.
15:01:16 [AndyS]
UC: Ontology editors : Are there any other areas?
15:01:52 [SimonR]
ACTION TomAdams: finding a use-case for direct/transitive.

agendum 5. "XQuery tradeoff (ACTION SimonR)" taken up [from DanC]
15:06:39 [TomAdams]
Kendall, we're doing work with OWL APIs ATM, I may be able to get some input here also...
15:07:38 [SimonR]
SimonR requests RobS to take over this action.
15:07:41 [DaveB]
15:07:46 [DanC]
XQuery syntax for BRQL semantics
15:09:39 [kendall]
Tom: Ah, good to know.
15:12:12 [SimonR]
AndyS objects to RobS's quoted proposal based on it not being XQuery.
15:12:18 [DanC]

15:36:16 [DanC]
ack danc
15:36:16 [Zakim]
DanC, you wanted to ask andy about other proposals we don't get to hear about
15:38:43 [AndyS]
"Making RDF Data Available for XML processing"
15:39:09 [AlbertoR]
15:39:43 [AlbertoR]
+1 to put the above document on the reading list for F2F
15:40:56 [AndyS]
15:42:33 [SimonR]
DanC requests that RobS and AndyS's documents will be on the reading list for the F2F.
15:42:40 [DanC]
Zakim, next agendum
15:42:40 [Zakim]
agendum 6. "SOURCE issue (ACTION DaveB)" taken up [from DanC]
15:43:19 [DaveB]
15:45:49 [AlbertoR]
I mentioned some issues about FROM vs. SOURCE -
15:46:39 [TomAdams]
(for the record) Sources specified in SOURCE clause are unions currently.
15:49:37 [AlbertoR]
15:50:03 [AlbertoR]
would like to discuss the FROM vs. SOURCE more at f2f or by email -
15:50:06 [DanC]
Zakim, next agendum
15:50:06 [Zakim]
agendum 7. "ftf agenda, issues list" taken up [from DanC]
15:50:10 [AndyS]
FROM <uri1>, <uri2> is merged union
15:50:51 [AndyS]
(For the record!)
15:51:11 [AndyS]
SOURCE isn't union.
15:51:20 [AlbertoR]
also possible discussion about SOURCE as bNode and realed UC "Identity management" -
15:51:46 [kendall]
AndyS: hmm, that's kinda hard to scan... any chance for something more like FROM <u1> AND <u2>?
15:51:47 [SimonR]
DanC: Useful to get F2F discussion on several issues. Inviting volunteers to lead discussion on specific issues.
15:52:25 [SimonR]
RobS volunteers to lead the XQuery topic.
15:52:32 [AndyS]
If you want - no difficulties there
15:52:38 [DaveB]
"DI use case?" what's DI?
15:52:52 [AndyS]
Device Independence
15:53:03 [TomAdams]
AndyS, I knew I'd make a fool of myself over not having read it thoroughly... :)
15:53:16 [SimonR]
DanC suggests he'll have to compose an issues list. Would like someone else involved in composing it but suspects it might be hard to do so.
15:53:27 [kendall]
Andy: maybe i just shouldn't ever talk about syntax ;>
15:54:51 [SimonR]
DaveB volunteers to lead a discussion on SOURCE.
15:55:19 [DanC]
Zakim, next agendum
15:55:19 [Zakim]
agendum 8. "BRQL r1.55" taken up [from DanC]
15:55:56 [SimonR]

15:56:11 [DanC]
