14:07:18 [JibberJim]
Hi people, sorry I have no phone available :-( there's insufficient internet here for my voip
14:07:24 [ChrisR]
action item 1 - Shadi and Charlos todo
14:08:06 [ChrisR]
item 1 - Carlos will post by next Monday (RDF-CL in EARL)
14:08:19 [ChrisR]
14:08:42 [shadi]
jim, we are looking at open action items
14:08:48 [shadi]
14:09:12 [shadi]
i beliebe your 1st action item is partially closed, right?
14:09:26 [shadi]
and your second one, you need to repind the annotea folks
14:10:07 [shadi]
zakim, close agendum 1
14:10:07 [Zakim]
agendum 1, Review of action items, closed
14:10:08 [Zakim]
I see 2 items remaining on the agenda; the next one is
14:10:09 [Zakim]
2. EARL pointers proposal by Jim [from shadi]
14:10:12 [shadi]
zakim, take up agendum 2
14:10:13 [Zakim]
agendum 2. "EARL pointers proposal by Jim" taken up [from shadi]
14:10:31 [shadi]
14:10:38 [JibberJim]
yes, I need a little finishing up on the 1st, if everyone is happy with what I posted, and the 2nd yes I need to chase the annotea folk again
14:12:30 [niq]
also for the minutes: The proposal makes a lot of sense as far as it goes, but that's just a first reaction
14:13:51 [ChrisR]
JK - content needs to be converted to text. Need another field that that describes encoding.
14:14:05 [shadi]
14:14:43 [JibberJim]
Do you mean the original encoding? would this not come from the HTTP vocab?
14:15:10 [JibberJim]
the encoding in snippets would be in the encoding of the RDF file - ie it could be transcoded from the original
14:15:29 [niq]
c.f. my comment on encoding wrt HTTP-in-RDF from last night (EU time)
14:16:02 [JohannesK]
Jim: if you have e.g. images/PDFs you only have bytes not characters, but you need to transform these bytes into text (e.g. with Base64) because EARL is a text format
14:17:45 [ChrisR]
NIQ no need to record info that is already in HTTP info
14:17:46 [shadi]
jim, is it ok to give you an action item to clean up the proposal and provide RDFS that can be plugged into the schema document?
14:19:28 [JibberJim]
ah, JK I wasn't considering the snippet etc. methods would work for non text content
14:19:36 [JibberJim]
yes shadi it's fine
14:19:42 [shadi]
action: jim to clean up the proposal and provide RDFS that can be plugged into the schema document
14:21:26 [ChrisR]
SZ - wonders if we should use something like byte offest length?
14:22:24 [ChrisR]
JK - doesn't make sense to mix. Should be char offset.
14:23:02 [ChrisR]
NIQ - simple tools use byte offsets easier.
14:23:39 [ChrisR]
SZ - problem with unicode (chars can use more that one byte)
14:26:51 [ChrisR]
SZ - some times bytes instead of chars makes sense
14:27:45 [ChrisR]
action: JK to send comment to list
14:28:08 [shadi]
zakim, close agendum 2
14:28:08 [Zakim]
agendum 2, EARL pointers proposal by Jim, closed
14:28:09 [Zakim]
I see 1 item remaining on the agenda:
14:28:13 [Zakim]
3. URI-in-RDF request by CarlosV [from shadi]
14:28:16 [shadi]
zakim, take up agendum 3
14:28:16 [Zakim]
agendum 3. "URI-in-RDF request by CarlosV" taken up [from shadi]
14:28:27 [shadi]
14:30:03 [ChrisR]
SZ - we should be cautious about encoding everything in RDF.
14:30:46 [ChrisR]
JK - was CarlosV's idea and he had use cases in mind but I don't know what they are.
14:31:21 [ChrisR]
JK - If don't want to use it in EARL should not be required.
14:31:45 [shadi]
present: +CarlosV
14:33:48 [ChrisR]
SZ - URI is important for EARL so needs to be properties
14:35:26 [carlos]
carlos has joined #er
14:36:03 [ChrisR]
SZ - many items can be put in URI so what is benefit of seperating out?
14:36:45 [ChrisR]
CV - consistency
14:37:03 [ChrisR]
SZ - What is problem with EARL URI?
14:38:42 [Zakim]
14:39:34 [Zakim]
14:39:41 [ChrisR]
SZ - there are minor drawbacks so we need a solid use case
14:42:39 [ChrisR]
SZ - more efficient to record just header info and not content
14:43:15 [Zakim]
14:43:32 [Zakim]
14:45:25 [ChrisR]
CV - would like a single property/class to describe, currently have too many things
14:45:57 [ChrisR]
JK - need use cases to describe where split is necessary, else use single property
14:46:04 [ChrisR]
SZ - good suggestion
14:48:58 [Zakim]
14:49:25 [Zakim]
