sorry i'm late, all
14:40:37 [kendall]
Not ready to approve any tests just yet
14:42:40 [kendall]
Whether protocol needs additional warnings/faults/errors will be left to protocol testing developments
14:42:53 [kendall]
EliasT: tests may need another endpoint
14:43:06 [kendall]
DanC suggests something that I didn't catch ;>

FWIW, the protocol spec has some URIs with bad TLDs that need to be fixed.
14:46:12 [AndyS]

I don't understand 'pretty please mute me', LeeF
14:53:14 [LeeF]

14:53:14 [Zakim]
LeeF should now be muted
14:53:48 [kendall]
14:56:49 [LeeF]
zakim, unmute me

LeeF should no longer be muted
14:58:09 [kendall]
Strings often cause changes in my brain state, for example. :>
14:58:35 [kendall]
Some worry over the anthropomorphic language in the security considerations stuff
14:59:09 [DanC]
rather than "queries may cause...", say "Processing queries may involve..."
15:02:04 [DanC]
PROPOSED: that B. Security Considerations + editorial tweaks incl. citing protocol spec are responsive to
15:02:07 [kendall]
I don't believe adding additional policy considerations changes the design in a way that matters for Last Call...
15:02:18 [DanC]
better be safe than sorry
15:02:27 [kendall]
15:02:37 [kendall]
I should say that I don't really care one way or t'other :>

The Semantics of SPARQL
15:08:35 [kendall]
by E. Franconi and S. Tessaris
15:10:43 [kendall]
Some discussion of the undefined constant in their semantics
15:11:33 [kendall]
ACTION PatH: to review The Semantics of SPARQL
15:12:14 [kendall]
We all have an expectation (or we all seem to) that this doc will be input to the QL spec.
15:12:49 [kendall]
Likely to have, we believe, soundness & completeness results
15:13:09 [kendall]
Doesn't cover OPTIONAL now, but there's a promise that it will, as well as a promise of an algebra to come too
15:14:15 [kendall]
My org believes it is a good use of our time, FWIW.
15:15:34 [AndyS]
KC: Do you know if Bijan is making progress from last week's discussions?
15:16:16 [kendall]
I wouldn't be able to say, Andy. We've been heads-down on an RDF database benchmark paper, so I'd be surprised. But I just don't know,.
15:18:23 [kendall]
What a swerve that was!
15:18:44 [DanC]
ACTION PatH: sketch tests that characterize impact of semantics work
15:19:34 [DanC]
ACTION: Bijan to take a pass through the editor's draft, listing what will change with the new semantics understanding, and what will not [CONTINUES]

ACTION: Enrico to take a pass through the editor's draft, listing what will change with the new semantics understanding ... [CONTINUES]

(I don't even feel guilty about not *wanting* to follow here... :>)
15:27:26 [ericP]
15:27:38 [DanC]
PROPOSED: to add sop:langMatches to SPARQL per sop:langMatches of v 1.514 of rq23, in response to @@the Right comment
15:28:20 [DanC]
EricP: no, importing from xquery doesn't work; they have a default node and such

15:34:05 [DanC]

15:44:49 [ericP]
15:45:02 [ericP]
15:47:16 [AndyS]
Is there a URI that isn't an IRI?
15:47:20 [DanC]
15:47:31 [DanC]
but there are IRIs that aren't URIs
15:47:33 [AndyS]
Thought not
15:47:35 [DanC]
though they map
15:47:39 [ericP]
15:48:00 [LeeF]
Works for me.
15:48:09 [AndyS]
There are RDF URI references that are not IRIs (spaces)
15:48:13 [ericP]
15:48:15 [ericP]

FWIW, the scribe has resigned, if not in protest, then at least in move designed to preserve sanity.

DanC -- Can I just mail an inquiry for a WSDL WG review of the WSDL 1.1 stuff to their discussion list ( )? Do you want to investigate whether Working Draft is not the right status for this first?
17:40:13 [DanC]
it's published now. I concluded my investigation in today's telcon when nobody asked me to "pull the plug"
17:40:58 [LeeF]
so I'll go ahead and mail the wsdl disc. list then, ok?
17:42:32 [DanC]
17:43:30 [LeeF]
18:27:25 [Zakim]
Zakim has left #dawg
19:46:37 [LeeF]
Hmm. Would this (request to review WSDL 1.1 document) be more appropriate for the WSDL WG-only mailing list rather than the discussion list since it's a WG-to-WG communication? Does it even matter (do I worry about such things too much?)?
19:48:09 [DanC]
oops. hi. still here, Leef?
19:48:18 [LeeF]
oh yes
19:48:32 [DanC]
yeah, it's really not a comment on their spec
19:48:47 [DanC]
you could write to their chair and copy our WG. or copy both WGs
19:49:06 [LeeF]
Ah, ok, that sounds like a sensible course of action.
