15:08:04 [pfps]
Test suite for Semantics
15:08:16 [pfps]
Guus: no action on writing the test suite
15:08:42 [pfps]
pfps: what is required to make to the changes to bring the test suite up to date
15:08:42 [Zakim]
15:08:46 [pfps]
sandro: I don't know
15:08:57 [Zakim]
15:09:01 [ivan]
For DST: I am sorry, it was the other way round: Europe changes on the 27th of October, and the US changes on the 3rd of November, see
15:09:10 [gavinc]
gkellogg has done all the Syntax ones ;)
15:09:32 [pfps]
guus: andy and gavin have done test suites so they know the new format
15:10:05 [pfps]
gavin: there are input and output documents of arbitrary format, described in a description document
15:10:16 [gavinc]
15:10:49 [pfps]
greg: changing the documents from RDF/XML to turtle or trig might be a good idea
15:11:05 [gavinc]
given that there are no semantics for datasets, testing them using data sets sounds... odd
15:11:11 [pfps]
sandro: turtle might be better, as that doesn't require doing anything with datasets
15:11:45 [pfps]
gregg: entering the old test suite into Mercurial might be a good first step
15:11:48 [AZ]
AZ has joined #rdf-wg
15:12:19 [pfps]
sandro: I could do a copy into Mercurial from the current CVS situation
15:12:28 [AndyS]
Current test suites (lang, RDF 2004) name input and output so TriG not needed.
15:13:12 [ericP]
what do we test in semantics that we don't test in turtle?

action sandro: put semantics tests into mercurial
15:14:50 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-298 - Put semantics tests into mercurial [on Sandro Hawke - due 2013-10-02].
15:14:57 [Zakim]
15:15:03 [Zakim]
15:15:21 [Zakim]
15:15:34 [pfps]
guus: tests should be put into good shape soon

LC Comments on Concepts, Semantics
15:15:51 [pfps]
guus: issue 142 - sandro you have an action
15:16:16 [pfps]
sandro: the conversation on 142 is ongoing on www-archive
15:16:32 [gkellogg]
15:16:32 [trackbot]
issue-142 -- rdfs:Graph ? comment -- open
15:16:32 [trackbot]
15:16:51 [ivan]
15:16:56 [pfps]
guus: what happens if there is no agreement - there might be a formal objection
15:17:02 [pfps]
sandro: yes
15:17:13 [pfps]
guus: we can go forward to CR with an objection
15:17:35 [pfps]
sandro: but in the past there has been agreement on the situation, just disagreement on direction
15:17:52 [pfps]
sandro: right now there might not be agreement on situation
15:18:03 [gavinc]
15:18:14 [ericP]
-> issue-142 discussion on www-archive
15:18:26 [pfps]
sandro: may need to just say that there is no possibility for short-term progress
15:18:38 [ivan]
ack ivan
15:19:10 [pfps]
ivan: this situation may become problematic
15:19:34 [pfps]
sandro: but the worst outcome would be to require more discussion
15:20:11 [pfps]
sandro: comment from paul gross may be related
15:20:26 [AZ]
15:21:33 [Guus]
ack gavinc
15:21:50 [pfps]
eric: jeremy wants a change, paul may just need clarification
15:22:44 [pfps]
gavin: i have a response in hand saying that paul's example is acceptable but just needs application-specific processing
15:22:49 [pfps]
guus: that's the situation
15:23:26 [pfps]
sandro: it might be useful to tell paul more about the situation
15:23:56 [Zakim]

action gavin: draft response to paul groth
15:24:18 [trackbot]
Created ACTION-299 - Draft response to paul groth [on Gavin Carothers - due 2013-10-02].
15:24:28 [gavinc]
Zakim, who is talking?
15:24:42 [Zakim]
gavinc, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: Guus_Schreiber (44%)
15:25:12 [pfps]
guus: by mid-October all LC issues on Concepts and Semantics need to be resolved
15:25:44 [pfps]
pfps: a WG response by 2 October would be better
15:26:11 [Zakim]

+gavinc; got it
15:27:09 [pfps]
sandro: guus - can you send a message about the timing issues
15:27:37 [Zakim]
15:27:41 [pfps]
pfps: what about jeremy's other comment
15:27:57 [pfps]
sandro: I think that that is part of the same issue
15:28:01 [Zakim]
15:28:15 [pfps]
guus: I'll try to express urgency for everything
15:28:37 [pfps]
Dataset Semantics
15:29:00 [pfps]
guus: two messages - one from antoine, one from sandro
15:30:19 [pfps]
az: the dataset semantics document has a lot of options
15:31:04 [pfps]
az: peter commented that there are many other options, this has the options that have been discussed
15:31:24 [pfps]
az: i have to respond to peter's comments - no comments from pat yet
15:31:45 [pfps]
guus: there is more time to work on notes than rec-track documents, so this is not so time critical
15:32:26 [pfps]
guus: sandro - what should be done with your message on dataset semantics?
15:33:10 [pfps]
sandro: when I wrote it I thought that it might be part of a note
15:33:18 [pfps]
guus: part of antoine's note?
15:33:22 [pfps]
sandro: not really
15:33:44 [pfps]
az: I haven't completely read sandro's proposal
15:34:15 [pfps]
az: I think that it is more about handling datasets that appear on the web, my note is not concerned about this, but could be expanded to there
15:34:57 [pfps]
sandro: my note is more about containers, and less about web access
15:35:27 [pfps]
guus: the message is about how to view datasets
15:35:42 [pfps]
guus: if this is to be (part of) a note then the wg has to make a decision
15:36:09 [pfps]
guus: antoine, what should next be done for your note - incorporate comments?
15:36:12 [pfps]
az: yes
15:36:21 [Arnaud]
Arnaud has joined #rdf-wg
15:36:22 [pfps]
guus: then there needs to be a formal review
15:36:32 [pfps]
guus: the test suite has more importance
15:36:34 [Zakim]
15:36:36 [pfps]
az: agreed
15:36:51 [pfps]
15:36:58 [pfps]
guus: any process on comments
15:37:14 [pfps]
gregg: no progress, should be done this week
15:37:23 [pfps]
Datatype Semantics
15:37:30 [gkellogg]
15:37:32 [gavinc]
15:37:45 [pfps]
guus: message from pat on change to datatype semantics
15:37:45 [gavinc]
I guess us north bay folks sound alike?
15:38:04 [pfps]
guus: pushback from peter
15:38:52 [pfps]
guus: priority is test suite and getting comments sorted out
15:39:05 [pfps]
15:39:53 [pfps]
