Feeling that that this group might not be best placed to produce a JSON document 15:18:10 <davidwood> Proposal: Change ISSUE-2 resolution to (a) Not move RDF/JSON to REC. 15:18:21 <mischat> ivan: due to not having active JSON folks 15:18:39 <NickH> ivan, not sure that we all agreed about lack of JSON experience 15:18:57 <mischat> ivan: post meeting, there was discussion on the mailing, the conclusion being that JSON-LD might suffice all of the use-case we had for JSON RDF stuff 15:19:37 <mischat> ivan: 1. this group won't produce to a JSON RDF spec, and we would try to spin off the JSON-LD work into a community group 15:20:01 <mischat> ivan: the community group might attract the right people 15:20:46 <ivan> q+ 15:20:52 <manu1> q+ 15:20:54 <davidwood> ack Ivan 15:20:57 <mischat> davidwood: saw lots of people reaction re: JSON from within the WG. Why don't we ask people from the JSON community group to join our WG 15:20:57 <gavinc> +q to avoid this question for now 15:21:09 <mischat> davidwood: so that we can push this JSON work forward 15:21:51 <mischat> ivan: looking at the core JS/JSON community, they might have difficult to communicate with the diehard RDF group 15:22:08 <PatH> fwiw, i feel that this group should have a final sign-off, since there may be issues of formal compliance which the json folk simply dont care about, but we do. 15:22:16 <mischat> ivan: wonders if they will find it hard to communicate with the RDF folks 15:22:37 <davidwood> ack manu1 15:22:44 <mischat> ivan: doesn't think from a social point of view any liaison would be ideal 15:23:15 <mischat> manu1: there seems to be a strange barrier between the two groups. This is due to camps when people think about RDF and JSON 15:23:38 <mischat> manu1: 1. people which have triplestore and the SW stack, and their needs re: transporting RDF via JSON 15:24:33 <mischat> manu1: 2. the other group. People just getting into the linked data world. They can't afford the engineering effort to get stuck into the full SW tech stack. These folks don't want to use RDF, they want to use JSON 15:25:06 <mischat> manu1: they may find it neat that RDF folks might be able to use their JSON 15:25:25 <mischat> manu1: manu's company falls into the 2nd community 15:26:16 <mischat> manu1: believes that group 2, and not interested in helping people which have requirements such as "we have to make it work with our triplestore", or "we need to make our JSON talk to our RDF data" 15:26:21 <LeeF> manu1++ 15:26:50 <mischat> manu1: believes that we need to incubate the work, and that we should move people from the RDF WG to the community group 15:27:02 <manu1> q+ 15:27:03 <PatH> listening to this social discussion makes me wonder if it might just not be the right time to standardize this stuff. 15:27:16 <davidwood> ack gavinc 15:27:16 <Zakim> gavinc, you wanted to avoid this question for now 15:27:30 <davidwood> ack manu1 15:27:37 <mischat> ivan: thinks that the community should push the work forward, and that when the JSON CG are ready they should present their work to the WG 15:27:59 <mischat> manu1: doesn't think that this WG is the right place to push the work forward 15:28:23 <PatH> I have exactly the dual concertn. 15:28:29 <PatH> concern. 15:28:39 <mischat> manu1: is worried about that when the JSON CG thinks they are finished, they are going to have changes imposed by the RDF WG 15:29:01 <mischat> manu1: thinks that moving specs between groups won't be a fruitful activity 15:30:12 <gavinc> http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed/ ;) 15:30:20 <mischat> davidwood: thinks we should clean up issue two before we press on 15:30:31 <PatH> we are falling into a black hole of premature optimization. This standard will be obsolete within a year. 15:30:33 <mischat> ivan: doesn't think we need to recharter 15:30:52 <AndyS> q+ to ask what's the status of "make a Note on current practice stuff like Linked Data API" in issue/2 ? 15:31:00 <davidwood> ack AndyS 15:31:00 <Zakim> AndyS, you wanted to ask what's the status of "make a Note on current practice stuff like Linked Data API" in issue/2 ? 15:31:10 <mischat> davidwood: proposes that we vote, to remove "moving JSON from the rec" 15:31:39 <mischat> AndyS: is asking about the "note current practice stuff like Linked Data API" ? 15:31:49 <mischat> davidwood: thinks that the issue there is that we don't have an editor 15:32:14 <AndyS> q+ 15:32:35 <Zakim> +??P0 15:32:56 <mischat> davidwood: proposed that we make no resolution to "to move RDF JSON to rec" 15:33:00 <AndyS> q+ to ask if we are going to advance it as a NOTE in the meantime or just pause work on it? 15:33:06 <yvesr> Zakim, ??P0 is me 15:33:06 <Zakim> +yvesr; got it 15:33:09 <davidwood> ack AndyS 15:33:09 <Zakim> AndyS, you wanted to ask if we are going to advance it as a NOTE in the meantime or just pause work on it? 15:33:13 <mischat> davidwood: i.e. we remove that statement from the resolution, so that we can push on 15:33:40 <mischat> AndyS: what do you mean by "not move to rec" ? 15:33:54 <Zakim> +aharon 15:34:06 <mischat> davidwood: is proposing that we do no work on the RDF JSON, i.e. we hold off on all work, until we know what we are going to do in terms of RDF and JSON 15:34:06 <PatH> yvesr, we are just fixing peace in the middle east. 15:34:48 <mischat> davidwood: just clarified that by "not moving to rec", does not mean "writing a note" it means "holding off work on the JSON RDF stuff for now" 15:35:07 <davidwood> Proposed to remove the words "make a REC on something like Talis RDF/JSON" from the resolution to ISSUE-2 15:35:14 <tomayac> +1 15:35:16 <manu1> +1 15:35:17 <ivan> +1 15:35:18 <MacTed> +1 15:35:19 <mischat> mischat: +1 15:35:20 <sandro> +1 15:35:20 <zwu2> +1 15:35:20 <PatH> +1 15:35:22 <mbrunati> +1 15:35:24 <AlexHall> +1 15:35:24 <gavinc> +1 (TQ) 15:35:28 <LeeF> +1 15:35:33 <NickH> +1 15:36:04 <yvesr> +1 15:36:15 <mischat> the proposal is resolved.

No literal can denote any value in the value space of ex:empty. 15:42:17 <davidwood> Antoine wrote: Point 3 is not correct. For instance, owl:real has an empty lexical space (as pointed out by Andy) and yet, there are plenty of literals that can denote a real number.

What about "text/turtle;charset=ascii" 16:12:09 <mischat> davidwood: notes that there is a difference between a standard and a vendor specific serialisation 16:12:16 <yvesr> ericP, we could refer to it using its date (like rdf 2004)? 16:12:22 <ericP> AndyS, that's pretty compelling 16:12:43 <NickH> davidwood++ 16:13:05 <mischat> davidwood: we are chartered to standardising turtle, and we have the chance to align ntriples with current internationalisation efforts 16:13:11 <ericP> write "ASCII Turtle" on the box and "Accept: text/turle;charset=ascii" 16:14:32 <AlexHall> zhe, over what interface does Oracle accept N-Triples documents? is it even HTTP? 16:14:44 <mischat> gavinc: doesn't think that we need two specs, we can state that ntriples can be used either with ascii or utf8 16:14:49 <NickH> even if it doesn't get standardised people will produce and parse N-Triples as utf8, rightly or wrongly 16:15:20 <davidwood> ack ivan 16:15:41 <mischat> zwu2: oracles wants to be able to say that they support a standard. 2 levels of affordances to the ntriples serialisations. 16:15:59 <manu1> q- 16:16:00 <Souri> I am happy with the choices: N-Triple (classic - unchanged), Turtle, Turtle/N-Triple (N-Triple subset of Turtle that also allows UTF-8) 16:16:00 <mischat> ivan: would we have a mime type for utf8 ntriples 16:16:02 <gavinc> N-Triples Prime at the moment 16:16:14 <Souri> I am happy with the choices: N-Triple (classic - unchanged), Turtle, Turtle/N-Triple (N-Triple subset of Turtle that also allows UTF-8) 16:16:17 <manu1> q+ to make one final note about JSON-LD CG and RDF WG. 16:16:26 <mischat> ivan: 2 media types: one for turtle and one for ntriples 16:17:06 <mischat> ivan: the question would be, would we define a third mime type for triples ascii? 16:17:31 <Souri> +1 agree to Ivan 16:17:45 <mischat> gavinc: ntriples is not recommended as a transfer medium 16:18:04 <AndyS> (cough) N-Triples does have a media type - it's text/plain (sec 3). 16:18:14 <MacTed> Zakim, unmute me 16:18:14 <Zakim> MacTed should no longer be muted 16:18:17 <gavinc> exactly 16:18:25 <MacTed> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-wg/2011Aug/0170.html 16:18:30 <gavinc> it intentionally did not have one 16:18:36 <mischat> MacTed: richard's very clear proposal ^^ 16:20:16 <mischat> gavinc: is pretty sure that richard's proposal has been added to turtle's current editor's draft (n-triples prime) 16:20:26 <gavinc> http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/rdf/raw-file/n-triples/rdf-turtle/index.html 16:21:07 <mischat> davidwood: would we leave the ntriples in test-cases? and would be only have ntriples prime in the turtle doc? 16:21:10 <davidwood> PROPOSED: Create a UTF version of ntriples in the Turtle REC, while making clear that the ASCII version of ntriples is still acceptable for use. ASCII ntriples would continue to live in the test cases document. File extensions and media types should be in conformance to the proposal at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-wg/2011Aug/0170.html 16:21:26 <yvesr> i wonder why oracle breaking 'standards compliance' would be an issue, as there's no w3c rec for ntriples atm? 16:21:26 <ivan> +1 16:21:38 <gavinc> -1 To N-Triples still being in Test Cases 16:21:39 <yvesr> +0 16:21:53 <LeeF> abstain 16:22:06 <mischat> zwu2: asking him whether the ascii-ntriples goes into the rec ? 16:22:12 <zwu2> +1 16:22:40 <LeeF> I don't care from a Cambridge Semantics point of view, but I don't think it's that helpful to the world to have 2 versions of n-triples 16:23:10 <yvesr> LeeF, +1 16:23:11 <LeeF> :-) 16:23:36 <MacTed> +1 to overall proposal ... thinking that UTF-8 ntriples should then also be added to Test Cases 16:23:43 <NickH> Could we have a new thing with a new name that is Ntriples Utf8? 16:23:45 <mischat> gavinc: as an editor thinks we can specify a version of ntriples which can support ascii 16:23:54 <AndyS> +0.75 (one form, use charset to disambiguiate) 16:24:08 <NickH> and never standardise N-triples ASCII 16:24:26 <LeeF> To me, having one version of a technology feels more important than unanimous consensus on an issue like this 16:24:44 <LeeF> (And I don't care which version it is. :-) 16:24:46 <manu1> +0 16:24:46 <mischat> mischat: i agree with AndyS here, one media type and charset to disambiguate seems like the right thing 16:24:52 <mischat> mischat: +0.2 16:24:59 <Souri> A new name for the extended version: possible choices: N-Triples Prime, N-Triples/UTF-8 16:25:06 <manu1> +0 (not a clear idea of the rammifications of the proposal) 16:26:05 <Souri> Another choice for name: Turtle/N 16:26:13 <mischat> davidwood: ntriples is not prohibited as something going across the wire 16:26:47 <manu1> what about this - PROPOSAL: Allow two levels of conformance in N-Triples - people MAY use ASCII-only, but UTF-8 is RECOMMENDED. 16:26:52 <gavinc> -0.5 16:26:56 <AndyS> ASCII N-triples , UTF-8 N-triples :: common name "N-triples" -- market decides exactly the def of common name. 16:27:09 <mischat> yup 16:27:19 <AndyS> +1 to manu1 16:27:29 <manu1> q- 16:27:55 <mischat> davidwood: resolve we would have two version of ntriples, a utf8 and a us-ascii one 16:28:12 <mischat> so that oracle's software won't break 16:28:13 <manu1> I just wanted to say: I hope I didn't have too much of an anti-RDF vibe in what I said - I have a great deal of respect for the people in this group.
