ISSUE-220: defining shapes in a shapes graph

what is a shape

defining shapes in a shapes graph

State:
CLOSED
Product:
SHACL - Core
Raised by:

Description:
The current editor's draft (as of today) defines the following:

- A shape is an IRI or blank node in the shapes graph.
- sh:Shape is the SHACL superclass of those two shape types in the SHACL vocabulary. Its subclasses sh:NodeShape and sh:PropertyShape can be used to represent node and property shapes, respectively.
- A node shape is a shape in the shapes graph that is not the subject of a triple with sh:path as its predicate.
- A property shape must be the subject of a triple that has sh:path as its predicate. A node that has more than one value for sh:path is ill-formed. Each value of sh:path must be a well-formed SHACL property path.

with the current definition, every non-literal node in a shapes graph is a shape. if a node has a value for sh:path the node is a property shape and all other nodes are node shapes.
This provides no standardised way of identifying the shapes in a shapes graph.

The recent editors draft as well as the latest WD (as of August 14th) had this well defined. The new spec introduced by Holger removed this definition.
