Next telecon 17th July

ACTION: Guus to propose dates in Oct for Amsterdam meeting on SKOS [recorded in [43]]
15:06:36 [Bern]
15:06:40 [Bern]
Topic: SKOS
15:06:49 [Bern]
ACTION: Antoine to raise issue of adding broader/narrower relations in skos [recorded in]
15:06:49 [Antoine]
15:07:10 [Bern]
15:07:44 [Bern]
Antione: proposal is related to former SKOS extension document
15:08:05 [Bern]
...with broaderGeneric, broaderPartitive etc.
15:08:18 [Bern] one is meant to represent part-whole relationships
15:08:30 [Bern]
...some users have spotted these ideas and would like to use them
15:08:44 [Bern] should we represent these ideas as part of SKOS?
15:08:50 [Bern]
TomB: what is your opinion?
15:09:10 [Bern]
Antione: some correspond to commonly-accepted relationships in thesaurus domain
15:09:39 [Bern]
...but may be some problems because some relationships are handled by multiple SKOS properties, such as broaderPartitive and relatedPart
15:09:59 [Bern]
...but generally I thin it would be a good idea to recognise that these properties were proposed
15:10:20 [Bern]
...and some users want to use these properties as part of their models
15:10:36 [Bern]
TomB: anyone know how extensively these proeprties are already beeing used?
15:10:55 [Bern] has a W3C URI and people are using it yet it's status seems ambiguous
15:11:07 [Bern]
...anyone checked to see amount of usage?
15:11:36 [Bern]
Antoine: usage now is not important, but as long as they remain public and they correspond to common thesaurus usage then some users
15:11:44 [Bern]
...may start using them.
15:11:51 [Bern]
Seanb: what is cost to us to include them?
15:12:22 [Bern]
Antoine: not expensive, but I'm not sure they cover all the established needs. Some papers describe these kinds of links, but there are more
15:12:43 [Bern]
...but if we want to be extensive, or do we want to limit to the current extensions?
15:13:02 [Bern]
TomB: has anyone raised any objections, other than partititive issue?
15:13:31 [Bern]
...what status they attained in original project and why they weren't moved into rest of spec?
15:14:08 [Bern]
Antoine: I think it was for the readabiity of the standard, and to be clear about what properties can be extended by users.
15:14:10 [aliman]
aliman has joined #swd
15:14:43 [Bern]
...For example, a kind of link that can be thought of is e.g. a painter, and a painting process. This relationship is not currently expressed in the
15:15:14 [Bern]
...SKOS model, so some users may be confused about how to create their extensions? Should they be a sub property of broader or some more core property?
15:15:38 [Bern]
TomB: suggest we move on today, but discuss when Alistair is here to discover historical context
15:15:56 [Bern]
ACTION: Guus to move Action 26 forward [recorded in]
15:16:01 [Bern]
15:16:10 [Bern]

Tomb: Alistair has proposed a way forward
15:16:49 [Bern]
-- ISSUE-33: Grouping Construct (
15:16:58 [Bern]
15:17:39 [Bern]
TomB: Does anyone disagree with this approach?
15:17:46 [Bern]
No response
15:18:08 [Bern]
Antoine: Sean raised some concerns about syntactic constraints
15:18:17 [Bern]
Seanb: haven't had time to consider this yet
15:18:50 [Bern]
Antoine: didn't know if there was redundancy between syntactic and possible future semantic constraints
15:19:02 [Bern]
...wondering if more experienced people could say something about this
15:19:19 [Bern]
tomB: related to issue 31
15:19:21 [Bern]
15:20:04 [Bern]
TomB: alistair has added comments about relationship to OWL, specifically OWL-DL
15:21:04 [Bern]
