Provenance Constraints Review

Progress on LC reviews (actions 184+185)

What are we going to tell the Provenance WG? Use RDF datasets and serialize via either TriG or JSON-LD? We are late and should respond soon.

Turtle Tests

Andy's seed of test cases and Andy's announcement


TriG Syntax

Discuss whether in our dataset syntax, triples of the dataset's default graph MUST or MAY be surrounded by curly braces.

Related question: How can a human tell a Turtle document from a TriG document?

PROPOSED: In TriG, triples of the dataset's default graph [MUST|MAY] be surrounded by curly braces.

PROPOSED: Implementations that parse and store information from TriG documents MAY turn the TriG default graph into a named graph with a name chosen in an implementation-dependent way.

PROPOSED: The WG suggests it's a good practice to put metadata about a TriG document in the document's default graph.
