LukeWM, the HTTP Update
14:43:45 [LukeWM]

Should I add that issue to the entailments doc then?

14:45:25 [AlexPassant]
yes LeeF
14:45:39 [kasei]
good catch. should also have agreement on the iri (?)

14:47:23 [AxelPolleres]

14:47:23 [sandro]
this is a namespace? for XML or RDF?
14:47:46 [AxelPolleres]
14:48:00 [sandro]

14:48:48 [sandro]
yeah, I didn;'t mean to leave out "sparql"
14:49:35 [AxelPolleres]
andyS: maybe better to not block the namespace now, since it gives it more weight, we might not want that, unless we are sure about the namespace.
14:49:46 [sandro]
There MUST be a document at the namespace URI if the namespace is used in a TR.
14:50:14 [sandro]
yes, it can say "subject to change, etc"
14:50:24 [AxelPolleres]
snadro: pubrules prsecribe that there has to be a document at any namespace mentioned.
14:50:27 [sandro]
14:50:36 [AxelPolleres]
14:50:54 [sandro]

eric: HTML for now there.
14:52:49 [AxelPolleres]
... anybody objecting to conneg there?
14:53:01 [sandro]
html for now, RDFa and/or conneg later
14:53:06 [kasei]
LeeF, will you change that ns in the doc when you are making changes today, or should I?
14:53:07 [AxelPolleres]
sandro: we can do RDFa later on

14:54:29 [bglimm]
14:55:26 [sandro]
I see it in CVS.
14:55:29 [AxelPolleres]
birte: might be a commit issue.

14:56:11 [AxelPolleres]
lee: did you address all the issues we talked about?
14:56:50 [AxelPolleres]
birte: yes, but might need more reviewers, removed entailment regimes we haven't really worked on, just left RDF/RDFS

15:01:10 [AndyS]
15:01:12 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: 60mins up, would like to continue shortly about the aggregate issues.
15:01:15 [AxelPolleres]
15:01:31 [AxelPolleres]
andy: we may not agree, but let's start the issues.
15:01:50 [SteveH]
not really , no
15:01:50 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: almost all include we should include count.
15:01:52 [Zakim]
15:02:01 [AxelPolleres]
... do we have a starting point for that?
15:02:24 [AxelPolleres]
Andy: shall we start with the relational one?
15:02:25 [AndyS]
15:02:33 [LukeWM]
15:02:56 [LeeF]
15:03:09 [LeeF]
15:03:09 [AxelPolleres]
basically any XPATH/XQuery funct that accepts sequences could be allowed?
15:03:10 [AndyS]
StsveH - can you define it in email? Still hazy on details (prob happy with it)
15:03:30 [pgearon]
15:03:33 [SteveH]
AndyS, sure
15:03:34 [AndyS]
XP/XQ has issues in the details
15:03:37 [AxelPolleres]
e.g. string-join
15:03:41 [AndyS]
SteveH, ta
15:03:46 [LeeF]
15:04:01 [AxelPolleres]
lee: statistics, e.g. STDDEV
15:04:17 [ericP]
my pref would have been COUNT, MIN, MAX, SUM, AVG, but i think a system that has debugging from the start is a very good developer draw
15:04:28 [ericP]
so also like SAMPLE
15:04:29 [pgearon]
we'd be a laughing stock if we didn't include COUNT
15:04:30 [LukeWM]
I'd like AVG to be called something different.
15:04:48 [AxelPolleres]
COUNT seems to be agreed.
15:05:13 [pgearon]
+1 for MIN/MAX (mixed types aside)
15:05:41 [AxelPolleres]
axel: MIN/MAX don't add expressivity, but very useful
15:06:04 [AxelPolleres]
andyS: actually they do add: ussable in GROUP BY
15:06:16 [AxelPolleres]
15:06:42 [AxelPolleres]
15:07:21 [LeeF]
ack AxelPolleres
15:07:34 [AxelPolleres]
SUM also sounds like it has support
15:07:49 [AndyS]
15:07:52 [AxelPolleres]
AVG might need to be named different.
15:07:53 [chimezie]

ack AndyS
15:08:04 [chimezie]

ack consensus
15:08:07 [Zakim]
consensus, you wanted to comment on general, expected behavior of aggregate functions
15:08:17 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: different naming was suggested by Luke
15:08:19 [LeeF]
q+ chimezie to discuss consensus on general, expected behavior of aggregate functions
15:08:27 [AxelPolleres]
Luke: better call it "mean"
15:08:43 [SteveH]
can have AVG as an alias for MEAN
15:08:59 [SteveH]
a la isURI and isIRI
15:09:01 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: AVG would assume same behaviour as in SWL
15:09:07 [AxelPolleres]
15:09:16 [pgearon]
MEAN implies a numeric operation, while people might try to apply AVG to other things... but what's the average of "foo" and "bar"? :-)
15:09:44 [kasei]
pgearon: probably depends on the current text encoding :)
15:09:46 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: would lean towards AVG
15:10:04 [pgearon]
+1 for aggregates
15:10:18 [AxelPolleres]
either both SUM and AVG or no arithmetic at all
15:10:18 [kasei]
oops. that should have been s/:/,/
15:10:32 [pgearon]
I mean, for and "average" aggregate
15:10:50 [LeeF]
ISSUE: Should the average/arithmetic mean aggregate be called AVG, MEAN, both, or something else?
15:10:50 [trackbot]
Created ISSUE-50 - Should the average/arithmetic mean aggregate be called AVG, MEAN, both, or something else? ; please complete additional details at .
15:11:27 [LukeWM]
15:11:33 [kasei]
15:11:35 [SteveH]
STDDEV is quite useful
15:11:41 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: Excel has a core set that includes SDTDEV, does anybody think we should include that?
15:12:12 [AxelPolleres]
... extensibility should enable including these.
15:12:40 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: GROUPCONCAT very much like string-join
15:12:53 [AxelPolleres]
... we use it all the time.
15:13:02 [AndyS]
Name is horrible!
15:13:09 [kasei]
is the "GROUP" in that just to distinguish it as an aggregate function?
15:13:22 [SteveH]
kasei, yes
15:13:26 [AxelPolleres]
... no strong feeling whether it should belong to thee core.
15:13:29 [SteveH]
the name is horrible, yes

chimezie, you wanted to discuss consensus on general, expected behavior of aggregate functions
15:14:02 [AxelPolleres]
... I am not wedded to the name "GROUPCONCAT", aside that would we want to include it?
15:14:10 [kasei]
AndyS, seems tricky without the ability to escape the underlying values first
15:14:17 [SteveH]
defn, from mysql, FWIW:
15:14:34 [AndyS]
15:14:40 [kasei]
for csv
15:14:40 [AxelPolleres]
chime: shouldn't we rather think of criteria of what a well-behaved function should look like?
15:14:44 [AndyS]
StevbeH - does that escape sep?
15:14:59 [AxelPolleres]
... than discussing the single aggregates?
15:15:05 [SteveH]
AndyS, no
15:15:12 [SteveH]
not in mysql anyway
15:15:18 [AndyS]
NP - add a fucntion call.
15:15:21 [SteveH]
15:15:27 [AndyS]
15:15:36 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: we aren't even sure yet whether we want aggregates to define single return values.
15:15:38 [LeeF]
ack AndyS
15:16:02 [AxelPolleres]
AndyS: I already have a definition which ties it to a single value.
15:16:33 [Zakim]

Lee: will the issues we have discussed today go into the FPWD?
15:16:57 [AndyS]
-99 to definition.
15:17:26 [AxelPolleres]
Steve: already a list of candidates there, which we might extend, no definition at this point.
15:17:41 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: let's continue the list ...
15:17:47 [AxelPolleres]
15:17:48 [AndyS]
15:17:56 [SteveH]
SAMPLE is neccesary if we don't allow aggregate values to be projected, which had support previously
15:18:18 [AxelPolleres]
q+ worried about non-determinism (as usual).
15:18:20 [AndyS]

15:18:23 [LeeF]

15:18:46 [AndyS]
ah - "non aggregated variables" ??
15:18:53 [pgearon]
what about just using FIRST?
15:18:58 [AxelPolleres]
Lee: axel, yes it is nondeterministic, but it is very explcicitly non-deterministic.
15:19:09 [pgearon]
15:19:15 [AndyS]
A change to design but NP.

15:20:06 [LeeF]
ack AndyS
15:20:14 [AxelPolleres]
... without order by SAMPLE is just the same as FIRST.
15:20:25 [SteveH]
15:21:08 [AxelPolleres]
Andy: seems there are different assumptions here, don't see how you can sort the variabes coming out of a group by.
15:21:21 [SteveH]
in SQL yu can do AGGREGATE (?x ORDER BY ...)
15:21:30 [AndyS]
MIN or MAX nearly= FIRST?
15:21:31 [AxelPolleres]
paul: honestly, it's a while since I chekced that in SQL
15:22:40 [SteveH]

SteveH, any chance you can add an abstract to the Query draft?
21:34:14 [SteveH]
LeeF, I think we removed it deliberatly
21:34:33 [SteveH]
it jarred with the fact that it's a delta
21:34:51 [LeeF]
I'm pretty sure we need some sort of abstract for FPWD
21:35:00 [SteveH]
ah, ok, let me see what I can do
21:35:11 [LeeF]
Maybe just one or two sentences that mention that this is a delta? (The SPARQL Query Language is blah. This document defines additions to the language...)
