15:27:22 [jjc-scribe]
15:28:36 [HarryH]
ACTION: DanC to look at:
15:28:50 [HarryH]
Chime believes jjc's text addresses as his concerns.
15:29:22 [jjc-scribe]
15:29:40 [DanC]
1.239 has a raw paste of the text in 0079, with a @@todo
15:29:45 [jjc-scribe]
15:31:03 [HarryH]
Jeremy's previous non-normative suggestions on GRDDL Spec re validation and caching
15:31:18 [HarryH]
15:33:56 [HarryH]
I could see some informative text suggesting that you really try to minimize access to DTDs, namespace docs, etc.
15:34:39 [jjc-scribe]
q+ to say html dtd needed
15:36:00 [HarryH]
ack jjc-scribe
15:36:48 [HarryH]
DanC: Stick the namespace in your document explicitly and not rely on DTD
15:36:56 [HarryH]
Chime: Does this address entity reference concern?
15:36:59 [DanC]
I'm OK to to take an action around "stick the namespace in your document ; don't rely on getting it from the DTD"
15:37:07 [HarryH]
jjc: Something will go wrong if you don't have DTD in there.
15:37:13 [HarryH]
DanC: This would show up at GRDDL level.
15:37:42 [jjc-scribe]
jjc: entity in html gets transformed into rdf content
15:38:59 [HarryH]
Zakim, who's on the phone?
15:39:07 [HarryH]
I don't understand "who's on the phone"
15:40:53 [HarryH]
ACTION: jjc to take action to draft text to "don't write transforms that depend on whether or not its validated"
15:41:18 [HarryH]
Validation is not explicitly required by GRDDL.
15:42:27 [HarryH]
My suggestion is that we add an explicit sentence in Faithful Infoset saying that "Validation is not explicitly required by GRDDL."
15:42:34 [jjc-scribe]
text at end of section 6 in spec
15:42:42 [jjc-scribe]
15:42:53 [chimezie]
I think commentary on entity issues should be placed after the faithful infoset section
15:43:32 [jjc-scribe]
ACTION: jjc to draft test cases on validation
15:44:33 [HarryH]
ACTION: Chime send out "We're still thinking about your comments, Stefano"
15:46:19 [HarryH]
15:46:33 [HarryH]
15:46:46 [HarryH]
jjc: I've added Jena tests to the pending list.
15:46:54 [DanC]
"are you satisfied?" msg to ERH:
15:47:03 [jjc-scribe]
15:47:46 [HarryH]
ACTION: jjc to update Elliotte with the fact that the tests that address his concerns are in pending.
15:47:54 [HarryH]
15:48:24 [HarryH]
Tony did say: "Best close it out here. :)
15:48:24 [HarryH]
15:49:22 [HarryH]
Chime: thinks the informative rules help here.
15:50:08 [chimezie]
?RDFXML gspec:rdfParse ?G.
15:50:10 [chimezie]
in particular
15:52:21 [DanC]
"If an information resource IR is represented by a conforming RDF/XML document[RDFX], then the RDF graph represented by that document is a GRDDL result of IR."
15:55:32 [chimezie]
" * Whenever the RDF/XML spec says that an RDF/XML document with root node ROOT represents a graph G, we have ?ROOT gspec:rdfParse ?G.
15:55:33 [chimezie]
Some from XPath and XSLT:"
15:58:48 [jjc-scribe]
15:58:50 [HarryH]
ACTION: DanC to respond to Tony Hammond
15:59:06 [HarryH]
ACTION: Chime to make a visual representation of RDF graph and RDF/XML difference, HarryH to check in when done.
15:59:12 [HarryH]
ACTION: Chime to make a visual representation of RDF graph and RDF/XML difference, HarryH to check in when done for Primer
15:59:14 [jjc-scribe]
jeremy says that the above picture in primer seems to suffer the problem
15:59:33 [DanC]
(the diagrams in the primer were made with MS ppt, I believe. I wonder if chime's diagram will look funky by comparison)
16:03:36 [jjc-scribe]
discussion of oracle and product shipping
16:03:50 [HarryH]
ACTION: Ask Susie about GRDDL and Oracle deployment plans, and possible comments on spec if they actually read spec..
16:07:28 [DanC]
1.240 <p class="ed">@@<a href="">27 March from jjc</a></p>
16:08:25 [jjc-scribe]
16:08:41 [DanC]
(if I haven't ack'd a comment by updating in some way, please assume I forgot your comment and send it again next week)
16:13:14 [chimezie]
The test case should call out to the spec about the right of the agent to follow a policy that doesn't allow GRDDL mechanism loops
16:13:25 [DanC]
16:13:50 [HarryH]
ACTION: jjc to modify #loopx to relate to discussion about SHOULD.
16:14:08 [HarryH]
Zakim, magically go to Test Cases as Rec agendum.
16:14:09 [Zakim]
Zakim has joined #grddl-wg
16:14:20 [DanC]
Zakim, this is grddl
16:14:20 [Zakim]
sorry, DanC, I do not see a conference named 'grddl' in progress or scheduled at this time
16:14:21 [chimezie]
where is harry's wand?
16:14:21 [HarryH]
agendum 7. Test Cases as Rec?
16:14:34 [DanC]
(Zakim has not regained all of his marbles)
16:14:49 [HarryH]
Should we Rec Test-Cases or not?
16:15:28 [HarryH]
Agendum 9. Test-Cases
16:15:33 [HarryH]
ACTION: Chime to fix the relative URL problem
16:16:10 [HarryH]
Chime: A test-documet with internal anchors that are full URIs to test items.
16:16:13 [DanC]
(I was trying to figure out who has the ball on test cases publication. Harry, I recommend you track the critical path much more clearly, at least in weekly agendas)
16:16:16 [jjc-scribe]
chime - test doc has anchor to sections
16:16:26 [jjc-scribe]
has links to test material to test directory
16:16:43 [chimezie]
1) A test document
16:16:50 [jjc-scribe]
also has URIs for test instances that will be in GRDDL results
16:16:53 [HarryH]
(I thought it was pretty clear and the working draft had been published.)
16:16:54 [chimezie]
with it's own uri and fragments to test section
16:17:20 [chimezie]
16:17:48 [chimezie]
16:18:03 [chimezie]
16:18:06 [DanC]
(eek. I advise against minting ; if it's been minted, I advise against further investment in it)
16:18:20 [DanC]
(eek. I advise against too)
16:18:20 [chimezie]
16:18:50 [DanC]
just keep
16:20:23 [chimezie]
so the test material should always be the uri in the test 'repository' - grddl-wg/td/...
16:24:21 [jjc-scribe]
Danc suggests dropping fragments in munging of testlist1 into TR space
16:24:53 [jjc-scribe]
in order to avoid having multiple uris for same resource
16:28:42 [HarryH]
Chime: I feel like we have consensus on test material.
16:28:43 [jjc-scribe]
16:29:01 [HarryH]
Chime: Feels strongly that we unify URIs for human and machine-readable purposes.
16:29:02 [jjc-scribe]
Description: (informative) <I4.6/Manifest003#test>
16:29:04 [john-l]
<> a <>; rdfs:sameAs <> ?
16:29:22 [jjc-scribe]
links explicitly to
16:30:27 [jjc-scribe]
for the earl ouput chime is ambivalent about which uri to use?
16:30:38 [DanC]
(I look forward to progress on: ACTION: jjc to produce EARL for his implementation, and then sort out multiple test passing in his EARL. )
16:32:14 [john-l]
<> a <> ?
16:32:42 [HarryH]
We've published:
16:32:46 [DanC]
q+ to ask that somebody announce
16:33:05 [jjc-scribe]
16:33:06 [HarryH]
Now we need to fix the relative URI in the next publication of test cases.
16:35:50 [DanC]
options are 404 (NO), 410 (maybe), 303 ...
16:36:04 [DanC]
301 moved permanently works for me
16:36:51 [HarryH]
ACTION: jjc to manufacture .htaccess file for test cases using 301 "Moved Permanently" and e-mail Jean Gui.
16:37:20 [DanC]
the action is not just to email jean-gui; it's to get the redirect installed, with jean-gui's help
16:37:54 [HarryH]
ACTION: Chime to announce to that GRDDL Test Cases is a WD.
16:39:50 [DanC]
16:39:53 [HarryH]
Meeting Adjourned
16:40:02 [DanC]
RRSAgent, draft minutes
16:40:02 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate DanC
16:40:11 [DanC]
RRSAgent, make logs world-access
16:40:16 [iand]
iand has left #grddl-wg
16:57:08 [HarryH]
Ack, just lost you.
16:57:11 [DanC]
oh well, harry; I'll tell you the story another time
16:57:13 [HarryH]
Anyways, I forwarded the e-mail.
16:57:16 [DanC]
16:57:20 [HarryH]
There's another one, wait a sec.
16:57:26 [HarryH]
The last thing to mention is re HASTAC.
16:57:37 [HarryH]
Are you happy giving a W3C Recruiting talk on Thursday.
16:57:37 [DanC]
oh. call me back re hastac?
16:57:46 [DanC]
RRSAgent, stop
