14:30:52 <axelpolleres> Lee: "foo" and "foo"^^xs:string in future will parse to the same 14:31:19 <AndyS> Specifically, has data already loaded (RDF 1.0) 14:31:20 <axelpolleres> ... we need tro consider bw-compatibility with RDF1.0 stores. 14:32:32 <axelpolleres> ... there is a migration problem. 14:33:06 <axelpolleres> Greg: if you only control the SPARQL processor, but not the store. 14:33:43 <axelpolleres> Lee: is this a blocking issue?

14:35:16 <axelpolleres> Andy: existing software can be affected, I'd like to understand what value it brings. 14:35:47 <axelpolleres> Lee: our customers don't want to bother about adding xs:string or not. 14:35:58 <Zakim> -Sandro 14:36:17 <Zakim> +Sandro 14:36:22 <sandro> (oops) 14:36:58 <LeeF> http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-query/ 14:38:03 <axelpolleres> Lee: functions most probably affected, talk about simple literals, etc. 14:38:19 <axelpolleres> ... need revising. 14:38:36 <LeeF> A < B simple literal simple literal 14:39:03 <axelpolleres> +1 that functions probably only need revising, remember we added cases explicitly for the distinction, so unifying might just simplify things in some places? 14:39:55 <axelpolleres> Lee: thought that we might not need to change anything here (jsut by referring to the RDF concepts... but looks like we definitly need to make changes here. 14:40:10 <axelpolleres> ... which will most probably trigger another LC. 14:40:24 <axelpolleres> Andy: It's a gray area. 14:40:40 <axelpolleres> ... we'd just remove simple literals. 14:41:08 <axelpolleres> Lee: in a sense we'd just remove a conformance criterion. 14:41:48 <axelpolleres> Andy: operator table itself ??? (didn't catch that, sorry) 14:42:51 <LeeF> http://www.w3.org/TR/sparql11-query/#func-str 14:42:52 <AndyS> operator table itself looks to be a set of natural changes, not automatic 2LC (IMHO) 14:43:14 <axelpolleres> ... we can't do too much here ATM until the final decision (?) 14:45:29 <axelpolleres> Andy: str is okayish, lang is potentially a problem 14:46:32 <axelpolleres> ... strlen as well. 14:47:30 <AndyS> s/strlen/strlang/ 14:47:36 <AndyS> and strdt() 14:47:40 <axelpolleres> Lee: I see that can be made worked, but how do we deal with the migration problem processwise? 14:48:57 <axelpolleres> Andy: OWL was held up by a similar issue? 14:49:31 <axelpolleres> Sandro: We can provide the text we need in our specs, and hope the others adopt it. 14:50:07 <axelpolleres> Andy: that'd be 2nd last call, wouldn't it? 14:50:35 <axelpolleres> Sandro: still don't understand how big of a change that is. 14:52:11 <axelpolleres> charter question... "For all new features, backwards compatibility with the current version of SPARQL is of great importance. All queries, that are valid in the January 2008 version of SPARQL, should remain valid in the new version and should produce identical results, except in the case of errata. " 14:52:51 <axelpolleres> q+ 14:53:04 <axelpolleres> Andy: impact on SPARQL update not clear 14:53:28 <axelpolleres> Lee: most on SPARQL query, transparent to SPARQL Update..? 14:53:46 <axelpolleres> Andy: I think I could come up with examples that make a difference. 14:54:07 <pgearon> +q 14:54:21 <LeeF> ack axelpolleres 14:54:22 <Zakim> axelpolleres, you wanted to ask whether we need to go back from LC for a change in this regard? and to 14:54:24 <axelpolleres> Lee: yes,. but that's not because of affected SPARQL Update text, but because of affects on SPARQL query (implicitly referred to) 14:56:40 <axelpolleres> Axel: apart from the 2nd LC call issue, the cleanest way to be true to our charter would be to make case distinctions between RDF1.0 and RDF1.1. 14:57:04 <LeeF> ack pgearon 14:57:20 <axelpolleres> Lee: that's a clean way, but we have to see whether that will work fo us. 14:58:28 <axelpolleres> zakim, mute me 14:58:39 <Zakim> AxelPolleres should now be muted 14:58:44 <LeeF> I think it's a clean way, but i think it's a lot of work for us to get it right so that SPARQL 1.1 is clearly defined against RDF 1.0 and Expected RDF 1.1 14:58:58 <axelpolleres> Paul: i see where you're coming from with your example for SPARQL update, but still unsure about whether that's all for SPARQL update (?) 15:00:14 <axelpolleres> the simplest, but dirty(?) way would be to refer to RDF1.0 only and then maybe produce a note or something towards the end on how to use SPARQL with RDF1.1 15:00:51 <axelpolleres> Paul: will write an email (on my concern) 15:01:14 <axelpolleres> Lee: ask myself what the world would loook like if we stick with RDF1.0 15:01:52 <axelpolleres> ... if we all agree with that SPARQL1.1 against RDF1.1 is obvious, maybe, we don't need to do anything. 15:02:00 <Zakim> -LeeF 15:02:00 <bglimm> bye 15:02:01 <chimezie> bye 15:02:02 <pgearon> thanks 15:02:02 <Zakim> -MattPerry 15:02:02 <MattPerry> bye 15:02:03 <axelpolleres> ... let's take it to email. 15:02:04 <Zakim> -alex_ 15:02:05 <Zakim> -chimezie 15:02:06 <alex_> bye 15:02:06 <Zakim> -bglimm 15:02:07 <axelpolleres> adjourned 15:02:07 <AndyS> ADJOURNED 15:02:07 <Zakim> -Sandro 15:02:08 <Zakim> -pgearon 15:02:09 <Zakim> -Olivier 15:02:09 <Zakim> -cbuilara 15:02:13 <Zakim> -kasei 15:02:15 <Zakim> -AndyS 15:02:20 <axelpolleres> rrsagent, make records public # SPECIAL MARKER FOR CHATSYNC.
