15:17:52 <MacTed> Zakim, who's noisy?
15:18:02 <Zakim> MacTed, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: davidwood (13%), yvesr (82%)

15:22:55 <cmatheus> +1 close
15:22:58 <yvesr> +1
15:23:01 <pfps> OK
15:23:52 <Scott_Bauer> RESOLVED: Issue-59 was CLOSED because it was opened in error by the last RDF WG.  See:
15:23:52 <Scott_Bauer> ... issue-62 in relation to the turtle doc Guus to discuss with Eric.
15:23:57 <gavin> I did talk to eric last week!
15:24:01 <davidwood>  ISSUE-62: Revisit "The test cases manifest format has a semantic error"
15:24:01 <trackbot> ISSUE-62 Revisit "The test cases manifest format has a semantic error" notes added
15:24:43 <Scott_Bauer> ... Richard proposed continuing issue-62 proposed to be moved from raised to open
15:24:45 <davidwood> Propose to OPEN ISSUE-62 for later discussions
15:25:02 <cygri> (I think it was danbri who proposed to continue this .... but i agree)
15:25:36 <Scott_Bauer> ... any objections to opening 62, hearing none it is open
15:25:36 <Scott_Bauer> RESOLVED: Issue-62 was OPENED because we need to consider it properly.  See:
15:25:48 <Scott_Bauer> ... Moves us to issue-12
15:25:51 <davidwood>  ISSUE-12: Reconcile various forms of string literals
15:25:51 <trackbot> ISSUE-12 Reconcile various forms of string literals (time permitting) notes added
15:26:06 <Scott_Bauer> ... Guus thought we were close to consensus.
15:26:10 <davidwood>
15:26:11 <davidwood> Are we reaching consensus: see thread starting with
15:26:11 <davidwood> No :) See William's proposal and resulting thread at:
15:26:23 <Scott_Bauer> ... William made a proposal and I think we are not close.
15:26:23 <AndyS> ww sent regrets

15:26:41 <JeremyCarroll> q+
15:26:47 <davidwood> ack cygri
15:26:51 <Scott_Bauer> ... looking back on thread a contrary test case was stated.
15:27:07 <davidwood> ack JeremyCarroll
15:28:14 <Scott_Bauer> Jeremy: May need to take this off line.  The first working group put the lang treatments in late in the day.
15:28:29 <Scott_Bauer> ... late change to the desing of model and syntax.
15:28:53 <Souri> s/desing/design/
15:28:57 <Scott_Bauer> ... 2004 working group felt they weren't able to change the design and the intent of the rdf-wg wasn't clear.
15:29:24 <Zakim> -yvesr
15:29:53 <Scott_Bauer> ... the question is should we fix the design or live with it.
15:30:31 <Scott_Bauer> David:  Owl wg expressed a concern in changing datatypes
15:31:01 <Scott_Bauer> Jeremy:  Advantages of the current design is that it works well with DL
15:31:21 <AndyS> Was there a specific example of what possible change messes OWL up?
15:31:38 <Scott_Bauer> ... current design more targeted at more niave user 
15:32:24 <Scott_Bauer> David:  We already have plain strings.  Don't really buy the arguments we are breaking rdf
15:32:53 <davidwood> AndyS, IanH expressed concern over any change to datatypes because that would require changes in OWL.
15:33:49 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  Language tags as datatypes have significant opposition.
15:34:53 <Scott_Bauer> ... other proposal with not too much opposition to abandon the untagged strings and leave the tag literals as they are now.  
15:35:06 <Scott_Bauer> ... leaving plain literals as syntatic sugar
15:35:39 <Scott_Bauer> ... what problems would we still work out.  What does this mean for OWL.  Peter raised some concerns
15:35:58 <Scott_Bauer> ... some questions about how to deal with this in the syntaxs
15:36:09 <JeremyCarroll> q+ to address OWL concerns
15:36:36 <Scott_Bauer> ... curious to hear if this would raise concerns in OWL and Sparql
15:36:58 <davidwood> ack JeremyCarroll
15:36:58 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll, you wanted to address OWL concerns
15:37:56 <Scott_Bauer> Jeremy: one of the constraints changes may break OWL.  They mean by OWL is OWL DL.  Mapping from triples into some other language.
15:38:04 <pfps> q+
15:38:07 <pfps> zakim, unmute me
15:38:07 <Zakim> pfps should no longer be muted
15:38:29 <davidwood> ack pfps
15:38:30 <AndyS> SPARQL -- it's only result of DATATYPE("foo"@en) --> in detail, if class, not datatype, still err but unexpected?  SPARQL could just fib a bit and return rdf:LTS.
15:38:32 <Scott_Bauer> ... cause a greater divergence between OWL and RDF.
15:39:24 <Scott_Bauer> Peter: Any change to RDF (substantive) would be changes to OWL RL systems
15:40:08 <Scott_Bauer> Alex: Some details might change in mapping layer, but mapping is transparent for us from rules to sparql queries.
15:40:23 <pfps> zakim, mute me
15:40:23 <Zakim> pfps should now be muted
15:40:34 <cygri> q+
15:40:45 <Scott_Bauer> David: Lacking some of the people who could support Richard's proposal are not here.
15:41:04 <davidwood> ack cygri
15:41:06 <zwu2> I have to leave early to attend a customer meeting
15:41:08 <Scott_Bauer> ... Ian is invited to express OWL concerns in the future
15:41:12 <pchampin> pchampin has joined #rdf-wg
15:41:12 <zwu2> bye
15:41:20 <Zakim> - +1.408.642.aaee
15:41:48 <Zakim> +??P19
15:41:54 <yvesr> Zakim, ??P23 is me
15:41:54 <Zakim> sorry, yvesr, I do not recognize a party named '??P23'
15:42:00 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  How does this related to sparql.  Two places where its affected.  Returning a lang type string currently causes an error.
15:42:13 <yvesr> Zakim, ??P33 is me
15:42:13 <Zakim> I already had ??P33 as mischat, yvesr
15:42:14 <pfps> of course, it is not just OWL RL systems that have to change, but also OWL DL systems - my view is that most OWL DL implementers would not care too much, as long as the changes can be fit into OWL DL, changes to the OWL documents might be more problematic
15:42:18 <AndyS> q+
15:43:05 <Scott_Bauer> ... serializtion of sparql results xsd: string and plain literal are the same in the design with of those is supposed to be produced.   How should code be written.
15:43:40 <davidwood> ack AndyS
15:44:04 <davidwood> pfps, Alex (Revelytix) is an OWL RL implementor.
15:44:11 <Scott_Bauer> Andy:  to the second point.  Policy should be consistant between rdf and sparql results.
15:45:44 <Scott_Bauer> Lee:  One place to serialized it and do so in a simple form.  If rdf-wg goes in this direction charter implications may be affected.
15:45:54 <Scott_Bauer> Ivan: no charter implications
15:46:12 <AlexHall> We are a RIF implementor. Presumably changes to OWL RL would be reflected as changes to the rules as expressed in the profiles doc. We can handle those changes quite easily.
15:46:21 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  The one without the datatype markings should imply the other form is still valid.
15:46:28 <LeeF> ivan, thanks, did not realize that XML results document was already in our charter, so that's something, at least
15:46:31 <davidwood> AlexHall, Thanks
15:46:51 <Scott_Bauer> ... the consumer has to be prepared to deal with eithe form.
15:47:32 <AZ> AZ has joined #rdf-wg
15:47:36 <davidwood> q?
15:47:38 <Scott_Bauer> David: Not sure where to take this discussion.
15:48:14 <Scott_Bauer> Andy:  have one proposal to point to.  Need a straw man proposal.
15:48:23 <JeremyCarroll> q+ to mention real disagreement and/or semantics of SHOULD
15:48:48 <Scott_Bauer> David:  Asks Richard to prepare the proposal
15:48:50 <davidwood> ack JeremyCarroll
15:48:50 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll, you wanted to mention real disagreement and/or semantics of SHOULD
15:48:56 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  I can do that
15:49:16 <davidwood> Thanks to Richard
15:49:27 <cygri> ACTION: cygri to create up-to-date wiki page on ISSUE-12 proposal incl. arguments from the mailing list
15:49:27 <trackbot> Created ACTION-62 - Create up-to-date wiki page on ISSUE-12 proposal incl. arguments from the mailing list [on Richard Cyganiak - due 2011-06-22].
15:49:28 <ivan> q+
15:49:32 <Scott_Bauer> Jeremy: For some reason literal design remains a very contentious issue
15:50:05 <Scott_Bauer> ... It takes up a lot of time for the working group
15:50:40 <Scott_Bauer> ... we will not make everyone happy
15:50:57 <Scott_Bauer> David: There are too many ways to express literals
15:51:53 <pfps> zakim, unmute me
15:51:53 <Zakim> pfps should no longer be muted
15:52:06 <ericP> i read that as a proposal to discuss the type faces used to represent the number 1 in RDF serializations
15:52:49 <Scott_Bauer> Peter:  OWL and RIF spent a lot of time hashing over the addition to literals.  If a larger change is made it's a big change to solve a tiny thing. 
15:52:53 <ericP> (ref to jjc's concearn that literals are too difficult 'cause they matter to too many folks)
15:53:11 <Scott_Bauer> ... strings with lang tags are not very comprehensive.
15:53:39 <Souri> I'll be happy if the only change we make is say that "abc" = "abc"^^xsd:string (and SPARQL query result could contain a string literal in either form and still be conformant)
15:53:40 <gavin> XML literals for language, oh god... No, no it isn't.
15:54:04 <Scott_Bauer> ... deprecation of lang type literals would make me happy
15:54:14 <LeeF> I'd be happy if Souri's happy
15:54:29 <Scott_Bauer> David: Key argument is we have lang type literals and rdf literals
15:55:02 <davidwood> The key argument is that we have plain literals, rdf:plainLiteral, and xsd:string literals.
15:55:05 <Scott_Bauer> Peter:  Any OWL tool will handle any one of these and do the right thing
15:55:31 <gavin> I don't think anyone was
15:55:46 <Scott_Bauer> David: Who's objecting to collapsing the definitions
15:55:59 <LeeF> +10000 to leaving language tags aside :-)
15:56:08 <Scott_Bauer> Gavin:  How to do it is the contentious issue
15:56:27 <Scott_Bauer> David:  Would someone be willing to write up the propsal 
15:56:31 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  
15:56:41 <Scott_Bauer> ... We have that already
15:57:04 <cygri>
15:58:25 <Scott_Bauer> David:  Issue of contention was around sparql. 
15:58:39 <AndyS> err - datatype("foo") is already xsd:string
15:59:07 <cygri> AndyS, but currently it needs an exception in the spec to make it so. that exception could go away
15:59:09 <yvesr> AndyS, so it's fine?
15:59:48 <AlexHall> I thought the SPARQL issue was around results serialization, not datatype("foo")
15:59:49 <AndyS> Yes - it's fine.  The output issue is same-as RDF and not covered.
15:59:55 <Scott_Bauer> David:  Requestinng that Lee have a look at the page and provide comments re: sparql
16:00:14 <AndyS> AlexHall, yes - we are only talking simple literals - no langs
16:00:22 <davidwood> q?
16:00:27 <AndyS> AlexHall, yes - we are only talking simple literals - no langs covered in this discussion
16:00:29 <Souri> I am worried about "One of the two forms should be forbidden when answering queries over RDF 1.1"
16:00:41 <JeremyCarroll> q+ to give unrequested advice to chairs
16:00:45 <pchampin> what would be called a "plain literal" then, anyway?
16:01:04 <davidwood> ack ivan
16:01:05 <Scott_Bauer> Lee:  Spec has the data issue as an exception.  Main concern term that sparql uses for simple literals no longer exist it has a more far reaching effect.  Will take a look at it and take it to the sparql working group.
16:01:05 <AndyS> Souri, +1 -- and the answer should be use "foo" form.
16:01:12 <ericP> i think that removing "plain literal" mostly involves removing rows from the operator mapping and conditions for the function definitions
16:01:18 <LeeF> ACTION: Lee to take to SPARQL WG to gauge the impact on SPARQL process and schedule 
16:01:18 <trackbot> Created ACTION-63 - Take to SPARQL WG to gauge the impact on SPARQL process and schedule  [on Lee Feigenbaum - due 2011-06-22].
16:01:28 <ericP> (having drafted most of the plain literal text)
16:01:48 <Scott_Bauer> Ivan: procedural issue.  The problem of strings was in the charter as a time permits issue.  
16:02:00 <cygri> q+
16:02:12 <pfps> zakim, mute me
16:02:15 <Scott_Bauer> ... it would be ok if the working group decided to postpone the issue
16:02:18 <Zakim> pfps should now be muted
16:02:27 <davidwood> ack JeremyCarroll
16:02:27 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll, you wanted to give unrequested advice to chairs
16:03:12 <Scott_Bauer> Jeremy:  If the discussion goes on and on, a proposal vote should be taken
16:03:28 <davidwood> ack cygri
16:04:09 <ivan> q+
16:04:31 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  Yes it's a time permitting issue.  We understand what's not possible.   I would rather see the straw poll first.
16:04:45 <AndyS> SPARQL issue -- simple literal used as return type and arg in various functions  - obvious changes though : would fix at least one current bug :-)
16:04:57 <davidwood> ack ivan
16:05:05 <Scott_Bauer> ... I think we are close to finding something
16:05:46 <Scott_Bauer> Ivan:  Issue has taken up a lot of energy.  Named Graphs is something we must do.
16:06:06 <Scott_Bauer> ... We should not just close it but set a deadline
16:06:23 <davidwood> Straw poll:
16:06:30 <Scott_Bauer> David: I want a straw poll right now.
16:07:58 <Scott_Bauer> Richard: Just to point out datatype is already xsd:string.  If you ask for a datatype it returns string
16:08:21 <pchampin> q+ to ask about the term "plain literal"
16:08:36 <pchampin> ack me
16:08:52 <Zakim> pchampin, you wanted to ask about the term "plain literal"
16:08:59 <pfps> ls
16:09:10 <Souri> q+ to ask about the fourth item in the Issues: "SPARQL Results XML/JSON are hampered by the variability introduced by syntactic sugar. One of the two forms should be forbidden when answering queries over RDF 1.1."
16:09:29 <pfps> zakim, mute me
16:09:34 <Guus> Guus has joined #rdf-wg
16:09:35 <davidwood> ack Souri
16:09:38 <pchampin> ok
16:09:41 <Zakim> pfps was already muted, pfps
16:09:47 <Zakim> Souri, you wanted to ask about the fourth item in the Issues: "SPARQL Results XML/JSON are hampered by the variability introduced by syntactic sugar. One of the two forms should be
16:09:52 <Zakim> ... forbidden when answering queries over RDF 1.1."
16:10:27 <Scott_Bauer> Souri: variability.  Would we require sparql one of the two possible?  If we are required to return xsd:string
16:10:37 <Scott_Bauer> ... That is a problem
16:10:43 <LeeF> I imagine it's up to the SPARQL WG how to handle that in the XML format? 
16:10:55 <gavin> +1 LeeF, someone elses issue
16:11:04 <Scott_Bauer> David:  if you return quote: foo as a literal you should know that is an xsd:string
16:11:13 <Scott_Bauer> Souri:  thats fine
16:11:21 <davidwood> q?
16:11:49 <cygri> q+
16:12:04 <Scott_Bauer> Pierre:  A suggestion.  Maybe we can keep the plain literal which are semantically an xsd:string
16:12:27 <LeeF> Pierre++
16:12:35 <davidwood> ack cygri
16:12:39 <Scott_Bauer> David:  that makes a lot of sense to me
16:12:50 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  I agree with this absolutely
16:13:12 <AZ> AZ has joined #rdf-wg
16:13:17 <LeeF> If RDF can do this by adjusting definitions of the existing terms that SPARQL Query leans on, that would be _great_
16:13:37 <Scott_Bauer> David: lets take a quick straw poll
16:13:46 <pfps> like
16:13:48 <AndyS> +1 and preferred output form (SHOULD -- MUST is hard due to compatibility) is "foo" not "foo"^^xsd:string in RDF and in SPARQL results (proposal needs updating to cover this case - not leave open)
16:13:52 <davidwood> +1 to our current understanding of the proposal
16:14:00 <pchampin> +1
16:14:02 <AlexHall> +1
16:14:03 <davidwood> +1 to AndyS
16:14:07 <LeeF> +1 with Cambridge Semantics hat on, reserving judgment with SPARQL WG chair hat on
16:14:11 <Souri> +1 to AndyS

16:15:47 <davidwood> ack JeremyCarroll
16:15:47 <Zakim> JeremyCarroll, you wanted to give more unsolicited advice
16:15:55 <Scott_Bauer> David:  We seem to agree on three quarter of this proposal
16:16:00 <FabGandon> FabGandon has left #rdf-wg
16:16:05 <Zakim> -FabGandon
16:16:16 <Scott_Bauer> David: Let's take a formal vote since there are no objectsions
16:16:37 <Souri> s/objectsions/objections/
16:16:53 <Scott_Bauer> PROPOSAL: Accept the proposal at
16:17:11 <LeeF> Pat has spent a lot of time restating cygri's proposals, so I imagine he'd be happy with this
16:17:12 <JeremyCarroll> if pat wishes to object he can in the e-mail
16:17:23 <JeremyCarroll> and then we deal with that next week
16:17:31 <JeremyCarroll> same for any wg member
16:17:41 <davidwood> Propose to accept the proposal at with the modification that preferred output form (SHOULD) is "foo" not "foo"^^xsd:string in RDF and in SPARQL results
16:18:00 <cygri> +1
16:18:00 <Souri> +1
16:18:03 <davidwood> +1

16:18:17 <pfps> +1
16:18:31 <Guus> +1
16:18:41 <Scott_Bauer> PROPOSED: Accept the proposal at
16:18:51 <AZ> AZ has joined #rdf-wg
16:19:07 <pfps> Where does the proposal talk about SPARQL?  All the SPARQL stuff is in the issues, right?
16:19:22 <cygri> Propose to accept the proposal at with the modification that preferred output form (SHOULD) is "foo" not "foo"^^xsd:string in RDF; recommends that SPARQL and other WGs does the same
16:19:29 <gavin> and recomend that any concrete syntax SHOULD use "foo" not "foo"^^xsd:string
16:19:34 <LeeF> pfps, just in the proposal that davidwood just wrote on IRC
16:19:41 <AndyS> pfps - david's proposal says "SPARQL results"
16:19:51 <pfps> Of course, any change to RDF may impact SPARQL, and this does, but that is the main reason why we are doing this now, as opposed to later.
16:20:04 <davidwood> Propose to accept the proposal at with the modification that preferred output form (SHOULD) is "foo" not "foo"^^xsd:string in RDF; recommends that SPARQL and other WGs does the same
16:20:06 <cygri> +1
16:20:09 <Souri> +1

16:20:22 <pfps> ooh, right - I was looking at the wiki page
16:20:23 <AlexHall> +1
16:20:23 <AndyS> +1
16:20:26 <pfps> +1
16:20:27 <gavin> +1
16:20:28 <AndyS> (give or take the unicode char 001C)
16:20:29 <Scott_Bauer> David: Let's vote again on Richard's phrasing
16:20:35 <ivan> +1
16:20:41 <davidwood> RESOLVED: to accept the proposal at with the modification that preferred output form (SHOULD) is "foo" not "foo"^^xsd:string in RDF; recommends that SPARQL and other WGs does the same
16:20:47 <pchampin> +1
16:21:47 <Zakim> -LeeF
16:22:00 <Zakim> -mischat
16:22:01 <AndyS> q+
16:22:12 <pfps> OWL already strongly suggests using "foo" in concrete syntaxes
16:22:36 <Scott_Bauer> David: Lee will get back to me in relation to sparql
16:22:48 <davidwood> ack AndyS
16:23:00 <AndyS> ack me
16:23:02 <Scott_Bauer> Andy: Compatability does matter
16:23:36 <Scott_Bauer> Richard:  How do we make sure popular implementers are informed as soon as possible.
16:23:40 <gavin> rdflib already does this... sort of... via buggy string implementations ;)
