alignment import pattern

How best to treat owl:import statements in alignments

Semantic Sensor Network Ontology
Raised by:
Kerry Taylor
Opened on:
Someone (Maxime I think ) raised a commented in the meeting this morning about how import statements should work in alignments.

We should do this consistently, and I suggest we use the dul alignment as a use case to set the pattern for the others we are planning.

Right now, for the dul alignment here I unilaterally chose to do as follows:

<> rdf:type owl:Ontology ;

owl:imports <> .

That is, import the external ontology but not import ssn explicitly. This made sense to me at the time but may not to others.

Should it be different?
