15:08:23 <pchampin> david: all people having open actions are not here today
15:08:28 <AZ> I am but I'm not on the phone
15:08:56 <AZ> hmm, I completely forgot my action
15:09:53 <davidwood> Gavin and Eric P were speaking
15:10:01 <davidwood> They are the editors of the Turtle document
15:10:08 <pchampin> topic: Turtle moving to First Public Draft

15:12:43 <pchampin> ... (if the scribe got it right)
15:13:16 <pchampin> Ivan: could be solved in ReSpec

15:15:15 <pchampin> david: couldn't some javascript help?
15:15:46 <pchampin> gavin: I don't think we can publish a document with its content dynamically modified by javascript
15:16:28 <pchampin> ivan: I don't really care about being able to copy-paste turtle form the source; I can do that from the browser
15:16:45 <ericP> swallow our pride? what are we then?
15:16:55 <pchampin> xxx: would make it easier to work with XSL-T as well, though
15:17:04 <ericP> +1 to just publishing <-encoded turtle
15:18:05 <ericP> q+ to ask about RDFa
15:18:12 <pchampin> ivan: we can have all Turtle examples as seperate files, use them to generate the spec (with < encoding), and point in the spec to an archive with all the example as plain Turtle
15:18:42 <pchampin> pchampin: +1 to Ivan's proposal
15:19:18 <pchampin> s/xxx/eric/
15:20:24 <pchampin> eric: we should apply the solution that allows us to publish sooner

15:21:54 <davidwood> FTF2 Admin
15:21:54 <davidwood>
15:23:10 <pchampin> david: people need to edit the wikipage above to indicate whether they will attend physically, remotely, or not
15:25:45 <pchampin> david: it was proposed to have videoconference link with DERI for people from europe who could not come to MIT
15:26:03 <pchampin> richard: it was proposed, but I'm not sure if that will be possible
15:26:04 <AndyS1> Hello
15:26:33 <pchampin> ... should be confirmed by someone who knows more what equipment will be available on both sides
15:26:37 <FabGandon> q+ to mention discussions for having facilities for F2F meetings at WWW 2012 + 3rd F2F of RDF 1.1
15:27:43 <davidwood> ack FabGandon
15:27:43 <Zakim> FabGandon, you wanted to mention discussions for having facilities for F2F meetings at WWW 2012 + 3rd F2F of RDF 1.1
15:27:47 <AndyS1> Oxford end was in computer lab.  Worked well.
15:28:32 <pchampin> fabien: wanted to mentionned on-going discussion with WWW 2012 organizers to have FTF3 there
15:28:42 <ericP> -> MIT teleconferencing equipment
15:29:01 <AndyS1> Poll was:
15:29:13 <gavinc> Yes
15:29:17 <gavinc> Link works
15:29:51 <pchampin> richard: I will check if the equipment pointed to by eric will work with our equipments at DERI
15:31:03 <pchampin> ivan: I think there was also an offer to host the meeting at the Lucent labs in Dublin, have to check with Chris
15:31:09 <cygri> ACTION: richard to check if DERI video conferencing equipment is compatible with for F2F2
15:31:09 <trackbot> Created ACTION-72 - Check if DERI video conferencing equipment is compatible with for F2F2 [on Richard Cyganiak - due 2011-08-10].

15:32:28 <ivan> q+
15:32:29 <davidwood> q?
15:32:34 <davidwood> ack ivan
15:32:41 <pchampin> richard: I can turn it from an editor's draft to a working draft
15:33:13 <pchampin> ivan: administrative question: is it possible to publish it in the same move as the Turtle document?
15:33:23 <pchampin> david: I don't care
15:33:51 <Zakim> -AZ
15:33:58 <pchampin> ... I would even prefer two distinct announcements
15:34:36 <pchampin> gavin: if published separately, they can not formaly refer to each other
15:34:53 <ivan> q+
15:35:02 <Zakim> +AZ
15:35:03 <pchampin> david: not a problem at this stage, but may be we should record an issue to remember to update the links
15:35:13 <AZ> zakim, mute me
15:35:13 <Zakim> AZ should now be muted
15:36:23 <pchampin> richard: I need to know what will be the short name, the date of the document
15:36:39 <pchampin> gavin: the webmaster will tell you when you publish the document
15:37:00 <pchampin> ... I can help you in the process, just went through it
15:37:23 <pchampin> ivan: do we use the same short names as the original RDF or different ones?
15:38:02 <pchampin> richard: I think we discussed this a time ago: new short name during the development (rdf11-*) and in the end replace the original short names
15:39:30 <pchampin> ivan: the short name needs to be approved; we need to provide a short description of the document to Thomas, but he is in vacations now
15:39:56 <pchampin> ... once this is done and the short name is approved, richard has to contact the webmaster
15:41:41 <pchampin> david: if we agree here, I'll call a call for consensus on the list so that everyone can express
15:41:57 <pchampin> ivan: we should record it as a resolution
15:42:08 <mischat> i wonder who will be updating the RDF related validators on ...

15:43:58 <gavinc> Turtle version: Turtle is already a reasonably settled serialization of RDF. Many implementations of Turtle already exist, we are hoping for feedback from those existing implementers and other people deciding that now would be a good time to support Turtle. There are still a few rough edges that need polishing, and better alignment with the SPARQL triple patterns. The working group does not expect to make any large changes to the existing syntax. 
15:45:39 <davidwood>
15:46:00 <AndyS1>
15:46:39 <gavinc> When I wrote the Turtle one I was unable to find any good examples :\
15:46:47 <pchampin> ivan: Richard should write a paragraph similar to the one in the Turtle document (quoted by Gavin above) and send it to the rest of the group
15:48:15 <MacTed> Zakim, who's noisy?
15:48:24 <davidwood> TimBL expressed the goal of the custom paragraph this way, "Don't be afraid of being honest about the relevant techno-political situation." 
15:48:25 <Zakim> MacTed, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: David_Wood (25%), FabGandon (20%)
15:48:25 <pchampin> david: the link pasted by Andy is correct, but does not provide much guidance
15:48:43 <ivan> zakim, mute FabGandon 
15:48:43 <Zakim> FabGandon should now be muted
15:48:56 <AndyS1> Good news, this does not happen every publication cycle.
15:48:57 <davidwood> Introduction of RDF/XML spec doesn't explain relationship to RDF Concepts
15:48:57 <davidwood>
15:49:46 <mischat>  s/n3/ntriples/
15:51:21 <pchampin> gavin: I think the Turtle document does a slightly better job
15:51:22 <gavinc>
15:51:32 <pchampin> ... is that what you mean?
15:54:01 <davidwood>
15:54:11 <mischat> cygri:
15:55:42 <FabGandon> zakim, unmute FabGandon
15:55:42 <Zakim> FabGandon should no longer be muted
15:55:59 <pchampin> ivan: I'm scared of touching the RDF/XML document
15:56:11 <pchampin> david: we have to align it with the terminology, though
15:56:18 <cygri> q+
15:56:30 <pchampin> ... and to update the links
15:56:34 <davidwood> ack ivan
15:56:58 <pchampin> ivan: unfortunatelly
15:57:02 <davidwood> ack cygri
15:57:51 <pchampin> richard: some things really have to be done, including correcting some errors that have been spotted
15:58:05 <pchampin> ... also, making it clear that this is just *one* syntax for an RDF graph
15:58:38 <pchampin> ... though I can understand the arguments against touching the document at all
15:58:52 <cygri> ivan++
15:59:03 <pchampin> ivan: we can agree that any change we do is purely editorial
15:59:26 <mischat> is s/rdf graph/$somethingMoreModern/ considered an editorial change 
15:59:27 <mischat> ?
15:59:49 <pchampin> david: should this be a resolution?
16:00:02 <pchampin> ivan: yes, it's probably good to have it
16:00:37 <ivan> PROPOSED: the working group agrees that the RDF/XML document will have to undergo a minimal, editorial change to fit into the new set of recommendations (update of references, terms, etc)

16:02:08 <Zakim> -Souri
16:02:30 <pchampin> david: I don't want to open the can of worm "Graph terminology" given the remaining time
16:02:58 <pchampin> ivan: will the terminology appear in the RDF Concepts document?
16:03:01 <pchampin> david: yes
16:03:05 <cygri> ivan, long answer:
16:04:09 <pchampin> ivan: from the last emails, it seems we are reaching consensus
16:04:58 <pchampin> david: I agree, but I don't want to settle this issue in august, without some of the people that will want to be very careful about it
16:05:23 <pchampin> topic: ISSUE-12 language-tagged literals
16:05:00 <davidwood> Proposal for ISSUE-12 language-tagged literals
16:05:05 <davidwood>
16:06:03 <pchampin> richard: I can summarize the proposal:
16:06:15 <pchampin> ... don't change the way literals with language tag work
16:07:25 <pchampin> ... propose to call them 'language-tagged strings' because the old term "plain literals with language tag" does not makes sense anymore
16:07:43 <pchampin> ... introduce a class rdf:LangString to allow it as rdfs:range of properties
16:08:43 <ivan> q+
16:08:56 <pchampin> andy: I would prefer literals with language tag to have a datatype
16:10:56 <pchampin> ... with only one datatype covering all language tags
16:11:04 <davidwood> ack ivan
16:11:05 <ivan> q-
16:11:34 <pchampin> ivan: in a sense, I'm in favor with what Andy says;
16:11:41 <cygri> q+ to say that there are no datatype properties in rdf
16:12:16 <pchampin> ... using rdf:LangString as the range of a datatype-property, if rdf:LangString is not a datatype, is strange from an user's point of view
16:12:21 <davidwood> ack cygri
16:12:22 <Zakim> cygri, you wanted to say that there are no datatype properties in rdf
16:13:06 <davidwood> …but the OWL and RIF WGs will be concerned with higher-level schemas
16:13:09 <pchampin> richard: I think that is a non issue; the distinction between object-properties and datatype-properties in not part of RDF
16:13:16 <pchampin> ivan: but we can't ignore it
16:13:55 <pchampin> richard: but the issue is not new, then: rdf:Literal is already a class
16:14:30 <cygri> q+
16:14:52 <davidwood> ack cygri
16:15:32 <AndyS1> q+
16:15:54 <AndyS1> q+ to say that is heading to langtag = implicit datatype.
16:16:33 <pchampin> richard: I have two concerns:
16:16:51 <pchampin> ... 1/ the complexity of a conceptual framework with (lexical form, datatype, language tag)
16:17:02 <pchampin> ... where language tag can only be present if datatype has certain values
16:17:09 <pchampin> ... 2/ abusing the notion of datatype
16:17:11 <AndyS1> There are numbers you can't write down already.
16:17:32 <davidwood> ack AndyS
16:17:32 <Zakim> AndyS, you wanted to say that is heading to langtag = implicit datatype.
16:18:15 <Zakim> -NickH
16:18:18 <pchampin> pchampin: @AndyS: are those numbers (that you can't write down) part of any xsd datatype??
16:19:11 <Zakim> -ericP
16:19:34 <pchampin> david: should we revisit the datatype discussion based on the new perspective you brought (single datatype, instead of one datatype per language tag)?
16:19:39 <AndyS1> They are in the value space which is the number line :-)
16:20:16 <pchampin> david: we have to adjourn now; next telecon in two weeks
