Exit CR:

Resolve Features at Risk

Lists of lists and partial list conversion from RDF / #4

JSON-LD CG Resolution: Support conversion of lists of lists to list objects by preserving the blank node head of the inner list.

Confusion related to context-sensitivity of @type / #9

JSON-LD CG Resolution: Make an editorial update to the JSON-LD specification to clarify that the @type keyword is context sensitive and make its various usages more clear in the specification.


Allow blank nodes to be used as properties / #3

JSON-LD CG Resolution: Allow blank nodes to be used as graph name or property.

Please note that blank node properties will be dropped by default unless the "produce generalized RDF" flag is set


Support for @base: null / #10

JSON-LD CG Resolution: Keep the @base: null feature in the JSON-LD specification as it is defined in the Candidate Recommendation specification.

Properly referencing the DOM Promises spec / #8

JSON-LD CG Resolution: Make the JSON-LD WebIDL API non-normative and refer to the Promises specification written by Domenic Denicola and proceed straight to Proposed Recommendation.


Checking prep status for PR:


Peter Ansell: Spec should reference the test suite

Status: response sent, issue not closed yet


Joe Rockmore: reified statements in Turtle

Status: no response formulated


Media type parameter for Turtle
