Should we publish it as real standard? 14:06:39 <bglimm> ... Would cause more work in terms of test cases, reviews, etc 14:06:44 <Nicholas> I think making JSON an offical standard is really important 14:06:56 <kasei_> +1 (would also like to see jsonp support) 14:07:02 <SteveH> +0.5 14:07:05 <bglimm> ... I would like to hear opinions about this 14:07:06 <Nicholas> will really help adoption 14:07:14 <sandro> +0.5 14:07:22 <bglimm> Nicholas: We use JSON a lot at BBC 14:07:38 <chimezie> Zakim, mute me 14:07:38 <Zakim> Chimezie_Ogbuji should now be muted 14:07:38 <bglimm> ... easy to parse, many developers know it, would help adoption of SPARQL 14:07:39 <chimezie> +1 14:07:57 <SteveH> yes, terrified of toppling over 14:07:59 <ivan> q+ 14:08:00 <SteveH> :) 14:08:02 <sandro> yes, that's why I didnt say "+1" 14:08:13 <AlexPassant> never used XML/SPARQL and works only w/ JSON, so also happy to have it as a rec 14:08:14 <bglimm> LeeF: I see a lot of support on IRC. Is anybody worried about this additional burden? 14:08:22 <bglimm> IvanH: Do we have editors? 14:08:33 <Zakim> +pgearon 14:08:44 <bglimm> LeeF: The doc does not need much work, we could keep the note editors 14:08:44 <pgearon> apologies for tardy arrival 14:08:54 <pgearon> muted 14:09:36 <bglimm> IvanH: Before making a decision, we should make sure we have editors who take responsibility for the document and the work this will cause. 14:09:52 <bglimm> ... We might want to look at this when other docs are in LC. 14:10:28 <ivan> q? 14:10:36 <bglimm> LeeF: I wouldn't make a decision before we have editors, but I want to see how much support this would have. 14:10:37 <LeeF> ack ivan 14:11:12 <bglimm> IvanH: We have the questionnaire for next steps for RDF and we might have a JSON format for RDF 14:11:45 <AlexPassant> would also require a return format for Update (simple 'success' / 'failure' pattern) 14:12:06 <pgearon> I think that JSON is possibly more used than XML is at the moment 14:12:13 <bglimm> ... The current JSON for SPARQL format does not cover constructs, but could possibly be combined with the JSON for RDF and cover costructs this way 14:12:18 <LeeF> ACTION: Lee to work with Axel to identify potential editor(s) to shepherd through JSON document on Rec track 14:12:18 <trackbot> Created ACTION-306 - Work with Axel to identify potential editor(s) to shepherd through JSON document on Rec track [on Lee Feigenbaum - due 2010-09-14]. 14:12:46 <bglimm> LeeF: If anybody is interested in an editorial role for this please contact me and/or Axel 14:12:58 <bglimm> Topic: Test Cases 14:13:17 <bglimm> LeeF: We can hopefully approve some more test case sets 14:13:25 <LeeF> group_concat test cases: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-dawg/2010JulSep/0272.html 14:13:30 <bglimm> ... some from greg for GROUP_CONCAT 14:14:08 <bglimm> ... there are two plus one from a later date 14:14:39 <LeeF> agg-groupconcat-1 14:14:43 <LeeF> agg-groupconcat-2 14:14:48 <bglimm> ... AndyS reported that ARQ passes the two older ones 14:14:55 <kasei_> I think the third duplicates the first, but also adds the separator. 14:15:06 <kasei_> I pass them 14:16:01 <bglimm> LeeF: The difference between the first and the third is that the third uses a non-default separator 14:16:37 <bglimm> ... Since the order of the rows in an aggregate is not specified, you can get multiple strings 14:17:22 <bglimm> ... Greg used a FILTER to test for the possible orders, useful way of abstracting from the fact that we need implicitly have an order 14:17:25 <LeeF> PROPOSED: Approve tests agg-groupconcat-1, agg-groupconcat-2, and agg-groupconcat-3 14:17:57 <kasei_> +1 14:17:57 <pgearon> Seconded 14:18:42 <bglimm> SteveH: You want to abstain as for past test cases? 14:18:48 <LeeF> RESOLVED: Approve tests agg-groupconcat-1, agg-groupconcat-2, and agg-groupconcat-3 14:18:53 <bglimm> SteveH: I'll check them later 14:19:23 <LeeF> project expression tests: http://www.w3.org/2009/sparql/docs/tests/data-sparql11/project-expression/ 14:19:24 <bglimm> LeeF: We have 7 tests for project expressions 14:19:28 <LeeF> zakim, who's on the phone? 14:19:28 <Zakim> On the phone I see bglimm, kasei, SteveH, Ivan, LeeF, OlivierCorby, MattPerry, Sandro, Nicholas, AlexPassant, Chimezie_Ogbuji (muted), pgearon 14:19:52 <bglimm> OlivierCorby: I created these tests 14:19:56 <LeeF> Andy - http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-dawg/2010JulSep/0302.html - ARQ passes all 7 14:20:13 <bglimm> LeeF: AndyS reported that ARQ passes these 7 tests 14:21:07 <bglimm> kasei: Are these the test with * in addition to variable lists? 14:21:16 <bglimm> OlivierCorby: I corrected that. 14:21:26 <LeeF> PROPOSED: Approve tests projexp01 - projexp07 14:21:40 <bglimm> kasei: My system passes these tests 14:21:45 <kasei_> +1 14:21:57 <bglimm> LeeF: Any objections, abstains? 14:22:01 <LeeF> RESOLVED: Approve tests projexp01 - projexp07 14:22:35 <bglimm> LeeF: Axel suggested some tests for entailments 14:23:04 <LeeF> entailment test cases: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-dawg/2010JulSep/0313.html 14:23:18 <LeeF> bglimm: Axel's question was whether the surrogate blank nodes introduced should be returned 14:23:24 <LeeF> bglimm: ...and the answer is "no" 14:23:49 <bglimm> LeeF: Is that in CVS? 14:23:58 <bglimm> bglimm: I am not sure whether Axel added this. 14:24:10 <bglimm> bglimm: I will add this 14:24:33 <LeeF> ACTION: Birte to add Axel's two surrogate blank node test cases to CVS 14:24:33 <trackbot> Created ACTION-307 - Add Axel's two surrogate blank node test cases to CVS [on Birte Glimm - due 2010-09-14]. 14:25:11 <bglimm> LeeF: There were discussions about SPARQL Update, triggered by Andy's review 14:25:29 <bglimm> ... Is that just rewording or is tehre anything we need to discuss 14:25:49 <bglimm> AlexPassant: It is some rewording and some details for the formal update model 14:26:04 <bglimm> ... we will finish the formal model by the end of the week and get another review then 14:26:22 <bglimm> ...
