zakim, agenda+ LHS of OPTIONAL
14:05:41 [Zakim]
agendum 3 added
14:06:56 [AndyS]
LHS of optional should be shortish - overtaken by events (in item 1)
14:07:16 [kendallclark]
yeah, i thought that might be the case, but another agenda item can't hurt since we have so few :)
14:07:17 [AndyS]
s/item 1/item 2/- opps
14:07:48 [AndyS]
What about the comments list? BobMcG's msg is about requirements more than anything else.
14:08:10 [kendallclark]
ah, yeah, i forgot about that message... we do need to respond
14:08:24 [kendallclark]
zakim, agenda+ Bob McGregor's uber-post on comments list

14:11:02 [SteveH]
has the telecon started?
14:11:32 [SteveH]
oh, no, just seen zakim
14:21:47 [kendallclark]
nice to see mark baker still has time to slander sparql protocol all over town :)
14:22:01 [kendallclark]
i will give him credit for one thing: he is doggedly persistent
14:22:56 [AndyS]
I thought the "use a different verb (PATCH)" amounted to defining an update language (over POST) -- except one is more deployable.
14:23:24 [kendallclark]
i don't like fundamentalists of any stripe
14:23:27 [kendallclark]

zakim, take up agendum 2
14:44:01 [Zakim]
agendum 2. "sparql algebra" taken up [from kendallclark]
14:44:26 [kendallclark]
14:44:41 [kendallclark]
SPARQL Algebra
14:44:43 [kendallclark]
14:46:01 [kendallclark]
Andy reviews SPARQL Algebra
14:46:52 [kendallclark]
there's a kind of 'reduction' phase; turns groups into join combos
14:48:44 [kendallclark]
to come: stuff on manipulating solution sequences
14:49:08 [LeeF]
"where are the hooks for extending?"
14:51:37 [kendallclark]
+1 to that, Andy
14:52:18 [EliasT]
ericP: I suggest you use unicode and specific XSLT to replace specific chars with images.
14:53:02 [EliasT]
kendallclark: AndyS, will you add some fabric to connect the algebra with the prose?
14:53:32 [EliasT]
AndyS: I was thinking of a stand-alone section with the algebra in rq24. I wanted to keep the terse presentation.
14:54:49 [AndyS]
14:54:52 [LeeF]
pluggable BGP solution generating?
14:54:55 [AndyS]
BGP matching
14:55:24 [LeeF]
+1 to pluggable at that level rather than pluggable parameters to E-entailment regimes
14:55:52 [EliasT]
ericP: Would it help to have a WG decision whether we'd support multiple rows???
14:56:22 [kendallclark]
i think i don't support pluggable at all at this point, but i won't squawk about it
14:57:02 [EliasT]
ericP: The reason for having bags/multiset is to support count/aggregate in the future.
14:57:16 [EliasT]
ericP: I'm fired up about it and so is FredZ.
14:57:34 [EliasT]
kendallclark: I think it's useful, so it's probably useful to have a decision.
14:58:00 [EliasT]
ericP: I wrote a test that expresses bags if we want to discuss.
14:58:14 [EliasT]
ACTION: ericP to bring up test on bags for next meeting.

tests on bags: and
15:01:19 [EliasT]
AndyS: I'm unsure of some of the claims regardng the WHERE clause. I'd like to see some more details on their language.
15:02:02 [EliasT]
kendallclark: Bob is asking for sub-select queries. If so, we'll reiterate the reasons from our UC&R.
15:03:18 [EliasT]
kendallclark: We should review with Bijan on the UNBOUND comment.
15:03:30 [EliasT]

15:03:48 [EliasT]

15:07:24 [LeeF]
We could at least ask whether the reason for no-shows is due to the time of the telecon... it's been a while since we considered a new time-of-week
15:07:43 [AndyS]
Good point
15:08:03 [LeeF]
15:08:12 [LeeF]
zakim, unmute me
15:08:12 [Zakim]
LeeF should no longer be muted
15:10:04 [kendallclark]
well, we considered it very recently, but didn't change :)
15:10:10 [kendallclark]
SimonR isn't showing because of time
15:10:13 [kendallclark]
15:10:44 [LeeF]
kendallclark -- recent change was just 14:30 vs. 15:30 consideration though, right?
15:11:00 [EliasT]
ericP, could you make the minutes public?
15:11:00 [kendallclark]
no, yr right
15:11:33 [kendallclark]
the dwindling numbers do make life more difficult
15:11:47 [kendallclark]
i'm not sure changing the time/day would help, but it's worth a discussion
15:12:02 [ericP]
zakim, lake lots public
15:12:02 [Zakim]
I don't understand 'lake lots public', ericP
15:12:09 [LeeF]
i thought it also made a good... pretext... to ask people why they're not showing up and remind them of their responsibility to the group
15:12:11 [ericP]
i never get this right
15:12:20 [EliasT]
RRSAgent, make logs public
15:12:32 [ericP]
zakim, lake logs public
15:12:32 [Zakim]
I don't understand 'lake logs public', ericP
