15:19:44 [pchampin]
of course
15:19:57 [SteveH]
Guus: pchampin, would be nice if you could take into account discussion of string literals
15:20:12 [SteveH]
Status of documentation
15:20:32 [SteveH]
Guus: concepts document, it's in mercurial
15:20:43 [SteveH]
... I assume that most of the respec problems have been fixed
15:20:45 [cygri]
RDF Concepts, editors draft:
15:20:57 [SteveH]
... I suggest to reuse old templates
15:21:14 [SteveH]
cygri: one way to start would be take a copy of HTML files, especially header
15:21:19 [SteveH]
... you have to make some obvious changes
15:21:27 [SteveH]
... then insert the current content as published
15:21:47 [SteveH]
Guus: I did that already for the primer
15:21:59 [SteveH]
... would be best is we started adding docs to repo
15:22:25 [ww]
aside: i tried writing a spec with respec.js attempting to put the vocabulary in rdfa inside it. didn't work very well...
15:22:28 [PHayes]
I have to say, this whole process is utterly alien to me and I really have not even begun hjow to install the necessary software. As I have no idea what it is doing, I dont know how to know if I ge it right.
15:22:38 [AZ]
AZ has joined #rdf-wg
15:23:34 [SteveH]
PHayes: I'll learn how to do it, but it will take me a while
15:24:10 [SteveH]
Guus: Richard sent a doc with shortnames for docuemnts, seems obvious
15:24:20 [SteveH]
... but why is it turtle, not rdf-turtle
15:24:24 [SteveH]
cygri: either would be ok
15:24:35 [SteveH]
Guus: we have rdf- infront of all of them
15:24:53 [SteveH]
davidwood: I propose to make that change
15:25:11 [AZ]
\me +1 to rdf- for all documents
15:25:46 [SteveH]
cygri: we should have a page (on the wiki) about the documents

davidwood: can we leave the telecon slot open
15:28:19 [SteveH]
[general agreement]
15:28:44 [SteveH]
Guus: content issues
15:29:13 [SteveH]
... as far as I can see the main changes to concepts are graphs TF issues, have to reach consensus, but lots of open issues
15:29:25 [SteveH]
... wondering if its useful to do review next week
15:29:42 [SteveH]
... is someone willing to prepare that discussion
15:30:02 [davidwood]
+1 to refocus discussion on graphs
15:30:08 [SteveH]
... about 10 issues open, propose we start discussing next week
15:30:19 [SteveH]
... re. concepts doc
15:30:31 [PHayes]
Unfortunately this particular week is impossible for me, or I would volunteer. Good idea.
15:30:32 [pchampin]
15:31:03 [SteveH]
... issues are well documented, so should review issues, and assign actions
15:31:05 [cygri]
+1 to reviewing the issues + deciding on actions
15:31:15 [SteveH]
... one issue is being tacked by telecon
15:31:36 [SteveH]
... we were close to consensus in last discussion
15:31:54 [SteveH]

OK, 0 from me.

15:38:37 [Zakim]
15:38:38 [pchampin]
15:38:39 [PHayes]
richard has a good point. THis may be a non-issue due to an old clerical error.

15:40:49 [trackbot]
ISSUE-37 -- Handling of fragment identifiers in RDF embedded in other document formats -- raised
15:40:49 [trackbot]
15:41:22 [SteveH]
cygri: things like RDFa make this question more important, so this should be considered
15:41:39 [SteveH]
Guus: we have an issue already, so we can close 60, redir to 37
15:42:09 [SteveH]
... can someone add a link to 37, and close 60?
15:42:19 [pfps]
I'll do it, instead of my other action.
15:42:21 [cygri]
+1 to close and redirect to ISSUE-37
15:42:41 [PHayes]
FWIW, re. issue 59, the 26 july 2000 wg minutes say that this issue is "removed from the WG's issue list", not "postponed".
15:42:48 [SteveH]
RESOLVED by consensus to close ISSUE-60 and redirect to ISSUE-37
15:43:17 [pfps]
go it

ISSUE-61 -- Revisit "An XML literal without markup, e.g. "foo" should denote the same thing as the plain literal "foo"" -- raised
15:43:45 [trackbot]
15:44:15 [pfps]
I don't think that Issue-12 talks about XML literals now.
15:44:19 [SteveH]
I don't believe that "foo" is a legal XMLLiteral, is it?
15:44:51 [SteveH]
"<foo />" is legal, I think
15:44:59 [PHayes]
+1 Steve.
15:45:51 [SteveH]
Guus: prefer not to close it with the current text, quite sure that we will close it with the statement that it's misguided
15:45:58 [PHayes]
I dont understand this issue? Was it to make "foo"^^^rdf:XMLLIteral be identical with something else? If so, what?
15:46:16 [AZ]
Close it but do not mention Issue-12
15:46:21 [PHayes]
15:46:36 [SteveH]
Guus: propose to close the issue stating that the statement is not true
15:46:51 [AZ]
15:46:57 [davidwood]
15:47:17 [AZ]
"foo"^^^rdf:XMLLIteral owl:differentFrom "foo"
15:47:30 [SteveH]
Guus: more discussion?
15:47:51 [SteveH]
propose to close issue-61 stating that the answer should be no
15:47:57 [pchampin]
15:47:59 [SteveH]
15:48:01 [AZ]
+1 use pfps proposal
15:48:02 [pfps]
15:48:02 [davidwood]
15:48:13 [SteveH]
RESOLVED: close ISSUE-61 stating that the answer is "no"
15:48:29 [PHayes]
Why do I keep thinking 'augean'?

ISSUE-62 -- Revisit "The test cases manifest format has a semantic error" -- raised
15:48:39 [trackbot]
15:48:56 [SteveH]
Guus: propose to continue this issue, and look again when we're working on testcases
15:49:04 [SteveH]

ISSUE-12 -- Reconcile various forms of string literals (time permitting) -- open
15:49:36 [trackbot]
15:50:12 [SteveH]
Guus: there's a thread about this, it appears we're close to consensus
15:50:22 [SteveH]
... would like discussion about things we don't have consensus about
15:50:28 [SteveH]
... plan for resolution next week
15:50:29 [PHayes]
I think we need a better name for rdf:LanguageTaggedLIteral
15:50:49 [SteveH]
PHayes: I think we're close to consensus, what about alt. proposal about using datatypes
15:51:26 [SteveH]
... about only remaining thing we're still debating is what we're calling this datatype, and how best to explain it so it doesn't sound complicated
15:51:38 [SteveH]
Guus: it's important to spend time on naming
15:52:08 [SteveH]
PHayes: there's on more issue, there's 2 ways to present it, the new datatype
15:52:26 [ww]
so "chat"@fr -> "\"chat\"@fr"^^rdf:LTR ??
15:52:43 [SteveH]
... one is to retain the current model sctrictly, but we have to use PlainLiteral device in abstract syntax, to include both parts in one string, easy, but ugly(?)
15:52:57 [cygri]
15:53:14 [pfps]
15:53:17 [SteveH]
... or would could bite the bullet and treat it like its a datatype, but it takes a pair, the extension is trivial, some people things it's complex, but I don't agree
15:53:27 [SteveH]
15:53:32 [Guus]
ack cygri
15:54:03 [AZ]
AZ has joined #rdf-wg
15:54:17 [SteveH]
cygri: there are several ways to handle connection between abs. syntax and semantics, one was is to leave PLs as they are, and say that rdf:LTS is not actually a DT, but a class
15:54:32 [SteveH]
... of all <string, langtag> pairs
15:54:39 [SteveH]
... worht considering, or do people object
15:54:47 [SteveH]
PHayes: that's a viable option too
15:55:01 [SteveH]
... if you look how they get used, it's only used as a classname
15:55:06 [SteveH]
... or a token
15:55:34 [SteveH]
... we can just say that (something) without saying it's a DT
15:55:44 [SteveH]
cygri: it seems that it's the least painful way
15:55:59 [ww]
15:56:03 [SteveH]
... it might be a bit cleaner to do it with a DT, but we still have three things
15:56:15 [SteveH]
... seems to cause oposition from implementors
15:56:19 [SteveH]
15:56:25 [SteveH]
... maybe it would be a good option
15:56:25 [Guus]
+1 for Richard's option
15:56:49 [PHayes]
As long as it can be treated as a 'type' in SPARQL :-)
15:56:52 [SteveH]
... two more things, may still be disagreement, there's ....
15:56:54 [ww]
zakim, unmute me
15:56:54 [Zakim]
ww should no longer be muted
15:57:29 [SteveH]
ww: this proposal seems like a half measure, intriduces an extra 3rd thing, and cant use rdf machiney to model langs, which we might want to do
15:57:38 [SteveH]
... we should leave open the possibility
15:57:44 [PHayes]
Which proposal is Ww referring to?
15:57:48 [SteveH]
... having a tuple-space with datatype means we cant do that
15:57:58 [SteveH]
cygri: i'm confused
15:58:19 [SteveH]
ww: dt with string,lang pairs means the lang is disconnected
15:58:35 [SteveH]
... there should be a DT for LTS, with subtypes, for every language
15:58:42 [SteveH]
... leave the door open for modelling that
15:58:48 [SteveH]
... abolish langtags
15:58:48 [PHayes]
15:58:52 [PHayes]
15:58:58 [SteveH]
cygri: can't follow that
15:59:00 [Guus]
ack ww
15:59:02 [SteveH]
... what is the proposal
15:59:21 [Guus]
ack PHayes
15:59:37 [SteveH]
ww: langtags abolished, strings are strngs, subsets of the sets of all strings that are strings in particular languages, subtypes of the string datatype
15:59:40 [PHayes]
I dont htink that our users will tolerate our bainishing lang tags on literals.
15:59:44 [pchampin]
that does not work; language are orthogonal to strings
16:00:10 [SteveH]
PHayes: there is a sizeable user population that demanded them with passion, can't get rid of them
16:00:18 [SteveH]
... inc. the 23c i18n group
16:00:36 [SteveH]
ww: not saying remove the function, just make it a kind of DT
16:01:00 [SteveH]
[sounds like ww is describing langtags as datatypes option]
16:01:10 [ww]
SteveH: yes
16:02:09 [cygri]
cygri has joined #rdf-wg
16:02:27 [SteveH]
ww: get rid of langtags yes, but map them to dts(?)
16:02:46 [SteveH]
... want to make languages a tree of datatypes
16:02:56 [cygri]
16:03:08 [cygri]
16:03:11 [SteveH]
PHayes: any proposal that removes langtags from syntax of RDF wont''t fly
16:03:12 [SteveH]
16:03:24 [SteveH]
ww: will write proposal to list
16:03:43 [ww]
zakim, mute me
16:03:43 [Zakim]
ww should now be muted
16:03:54 [SteveH]
cygri: some discussion is needed re. preference of different contrcete syntax forms
16:04:09 [SteveH]
... e.g. in NTriples would now have two options, "foo", "foo"^^xsd:string
16:04:23 [SteveH]
... there are different tradeoffs in different formats
16:04:38 [SteveH]
... in NTriples is good that there's not much syntax variation
16:04:55 [SteveH]
... would make things harder if I find both in the wild
16:05:12 [SteveH]
... should we say that one SHOULD, MUST or SHOULD NOT use one of these forms
16:05:22 [pchampin]
16:05:23 [SteveH]
... or allow each spec to do it's own thing
16:05:35 [SteveH]
... I think I disagree with AndyS about some format issues
16:05:44 [SteveH]
[what]s AndyS's position?}
16:05:53 [PHayes]
+1 to getting all this VERY CLEAR, for sure.
16:05:59 [SteveH]
Guus: shortest form is usally preferable
16:06:08 [SteveH]
16:06:41 [SteveH]
cygri: AndyS says that authors SHOULD use the shortest form, in SPARQL results I would really like to be able to know whether the strings are going to have the DT or not
16:06:47 [SteveH]
+1 to cygri
16:06:49 [AZ]
AZ has joined #rdf-wg
16:06:57 [PHayes]
Richard, you are shooting Andy in the foot here.
16:07:02 [SteveH]
cygri: so a SHOULD isn't string enough to me
16:07:20 [SteveH]
... in turtle I don't see the need
16:07:26 [pchampin]
s/string enough/strong enough/
16:07:43 [SteveH]
... would like to see a stronger statement
16:07:43 [Guus]
16:07:50 [pchampin]
ack me
16:08:00 [PHayes]
Everyone wants the query language to be both semantically transparent and also sensitive to the smallest lexical detail. Cant have it both ways, guys.
16:08:20 [SteveH]
pchampin: I agree for need for regularity, but maybe there are differences
16:08:28 [SteveH]
... NTriples I see 3 alternatives
16:08:36 [SteveH]
... allow both, bad idea
16:08:57 [SteveH]
... keep shortest one, best of three, but some iregulariy, string literals must be treated in special way
16:09:02 [PHayes]
How much legacy RDF is there out there that uses one and not the other? Do we ahve a choic eot not allow both?
16:09:04 [pfps]
I'm feeling very weirded-out by all this SPARQL stuff. RDF is supposed to be about *meaning*, not syntax, not even abstract syntax!
16:09:07 [cygri]
16:09:10 [SteveH]
... enforce xsd:string, but breaks a lot of existing NTriples
16:09:27 [SteveH]
... for the sake of back-compat we have to keep shortest form
16:09:32 [PHayes]
Yes, pfps, but querying is all about syntactic matching. You betcha.
16:09:53 [PHayes]
16:10:09 [SteveH]
Guus: users typically use the shortest form, but sparql query uses the DT form
16:10:26 [pfps]
Well, not as far as I am concerned. Querying is about retrieving meaning. (As opposed to straight entailment, which is simpler.)
16:10:27 [SteveH]
I would be -1 to SPARQL using the long form, that's a lot of bytes
16:10:56 [SteveH]
pchampin: I would be in favour of MUST for NTriples and SPARQL res, but not others, but not sure which form is best
16:11:29 [SteveH]
... both would break some existing data, most reg. form is with the datatype
16:11:31 [SteveH]
16:11:33 [PHayes]
pfps, so listen to Richard. He wants to make queries which distinguish a from b when a = b is *necessary*. Any why not? Hos code has to handle the suyntax, not the meaning.
16:11:38 [SteveH]
... explicit is better than implicit
16:11:54 [SteveH]
... there are a lot of plain literals out there
16:11:55 [ww]
less typing, more clarity and consistency - make developers lives easy as possible.
16:12:08 [Guus]
ack cygri
16:12:12 [SteveH]
cygri: for back compat we have to keep both forms valid
16:12:24 [ww]
+1 cygri
16:12:25 [SteveH]
... we cant say that any forms would now be invalid in NTriples
16:12:28 [SteveH]
16:12:37 [Guus]
+1 for not using MUST
16:12:40 [SteveH]
... when parsing both forms are valid, but when serialising, only use one form,
16:12:48 [pchampin]
+1, enforced regularity would break backward compatibility
16:13:03 [pchampin]
+1 about distinguishing old stuff/new stuff
16:13:07 [SteveH]
PHayes: I agree with Richard, there's so much stuff out there, can't make it illigal
16:13:33 [SteveH]
... one meaning can be expressed two different ways, the tool should treat them as equivalent
16:13:52 [Guus]
2 min left
16:13:54 [SteveH]
... is results sensitive to the way the query is stated
16:13:56 [ww]
+1 for tools treating them equivalently (and probably normalising them to w/ datatype internally)
16:14:29 [ww]
+1 for fewer bytes on the wire
16:14:50 [PHayes]
+1 to SteveH.
16:15:02 [SteveH]
SteveH: the long form is less efficient
16:15:13 [SteveH]
... even though it's easier to canonicalise to
16:15:15 [pchampin]
well, you are trading bandwith for (slight) code complexity
16:15:31 [pchampin]
you're just moving the inefficiency somewhere else :)
16:15:33 [SteveH]
Guus: is someone willing to look at cygri's proposal
16:15:41 [PHayes]
16:15:53 [ww]
pchampin: not only bandwidth - developers who look at it don't want to see extraneous cruft
16:16:16 [SteveH]
Guus: next week re restart graphs discussion
16:16:25 [SteveH]
... hopefully can set a dte for graphs naming discussions
16:16:29 [cygri]
ww, pchampin: by same argument, N-Triples should write 6 for "6"^^xsd:decimal

I'm transitioning from Talis to IE and next back to a proper affiliation.
16:29:02 [SteveH]
davidwood, ah, ok it's making red boxes appear in the minuites, will those be removed in the final version?
16:29:03 [davidwood]

Maybe you should ask Sandro by email? He is responsive
