Planned to discuss syntax, but realy discussed abstract syntax and how many sytaxe.
15:19:06 [barry_b]
syntax 'triangle', but nothing resolved.
15:20:07 [Zakim]
15:20:09 [barry_b]
Resolved presentation syntax. Remove ASN from BLD

Afternoon, semantic issues discussed XML schema and external data schema & RDF compatibility
15:22:05 [barry_b]
No resolutions.
15:22:32 [barry_b]
Discussed frames, is it needed? Not resolved
15:22:52 [barry_b]
Classification syntax to be part of 2nd working draft
15:23:00 [barry_b]
2nd day:
15:23:21 [barry_b]
Morning: planned more of the same to push 2nd part of BLD
15:23:32 [barry_b]
Started with abstract syntax
15:23:43 [barry_b]
Change spectral model of rules
15:24:26 [barry_b]
Moved to discussion of XML syntax (most important)
15:25:11 [barry_b]
Sandro: Use conventional XML syntax
15:25:32 [barry_b]
Based on ideas about what XML should be like, e.g. not use SQ names
15:25:46 [sandro]
rif:identifier, rif:Document
15:25:52 [barry_b]
Decisions recorded as resolutions
15:26:16 [barry_b]
Decision not to use RDF XML syntax...
15:27:16 [barry_b]
ChristW -> Discussed most important issues
15:27:25 [AdrianPa]
15:27:28 [barry_b]
Disucssed how to identify rule sets
15:27:51 [barry_b]
resolution: use rif:About or rif:Identifier at least in the next draft
15:28:14 [barry_b]
Also whether syntax specifies if order matters
15:28:28 [barry_b]
but XML ordered anyway
15:28:39 [barry_b]
Serialisation of constants also discussed
15:29:02 [barry_b]
Sandro: Left the way it is in current draft
15:29:13 [barry_b]
ChrisW: Decided not to use Curies
15:29:44 [barry_b]
For identifying dialect of RIF - have unique IRI
15:29:59 [barry_b]
Document associates itself with dialect with special attribute
15:30:17 [barry_b]
(Abstract syntax mechanism)
15:30:31 [barry_b]
Decision: Remove ASN from draft
15:30:50 [Harold]
Syntax Translation Table for Positive Conditions:
15:30:53 [barry_b]
Represent relation between presentation and XML syntax through a table
15:31:04 [barry_b]
15:31:10 [Harold]
Syntax Translation Table for Horn Rules:
15:31:46 [barry_b]
Resolution with XML syntax are/were critical for 2nd working draft

OCT 12 -- Frozen ED of WD2
15:31:55 [csma]
OCT 12 -- Reviews
15:31:55 [csma]
OCT 26 -- Freeze
15:32:32 [csma]
OCT 19 -- Reviews
15:32:51 [barry_b]
1 week to review frozen draft
15:33:02 [barry_b]
editors have 1 more week to implement comments
15:33:09 [barry_b]
Then voting takes place
15:33:34 [barry_b]
Review between 12 & 19th is only to raise issues that can not be lived with!
15:34:01 [barry_b]
We want to know as early as possible for serious issues
15:34:21 [barry_b]
For final closing version, everyone should be ready to vote to accept.
15:34:56 [barry_b]
Want to have as few comments as pssible after frozen draft
15:35:11 [barry_b]
At F2F then had 2 more discussions
15:35:35 [barry_b]
Discussed future of F2F, F2F9 probably in early next year in europe
15:36:01 [barry_b]
Discussed future of working group itself, what are the options:
15:36:04 [barry_b]
15:36:12 [barry_b]
asked for extensions (same charter)
15:36:12 [AxelPolleres]
I made a proposal for F2F9 at
15:36:18 [barry_b]
or re-charter
15:36:39 [barry_b]
Agreed for short extension
15:37:07 [barry_b]
To allow for progress on extensibility and other items in charter
15:37:33 [barry_b]
Also, discussed how much correlation between progress of BLD and OWL compatibility
15:37:47 [barry_b]
1 option, move forward and consider OWL later
15:38:03 [barry_b]
No, OWL too important, BLD goes forward in synch with OWL
15:38:27 [barry_b]
Informal discussion about RDF compatibility - no resolutions
15:38:59 [barry_b]
ChrisW: Important point - close to agreement

I suggest an action on sandro to send a mail by tomorrow to announce the starting points for the poll, allow until next telco others to make additions/modifications on the wiki with rationales, and we start, after a quick review the strawpoll next week? too late?
15:56:43 [AxelPolleres]
+1 to christian, exactly what I just wrote.
15:56:46 [barry_b]

15:58:20 [barry_b]
too much pressure time-wise
15:58:39 [barry_b]
sandro: Ok, IF XML agreed syntax is thowaway
15:58:54 [barry_b]
michaelK: naming conventions or structure changes?
15:59:07 [Harold]
We use names like Var and Const both in the syntax and the semantics.
15:59:08 [barry_b]
christian: names only
15:59:20 [Harold]
We already have this:
15:59:22 [Harold]
EDITOR'S NOTE: The XML syntax for BLD presented here is one of the proposals the Working Group is considering. It is presented here to get feedback on this strawman and to give readers an idea for the kind of information that will be presented in this section.
