pchampin: we have a number of open actions.. mostly for future reference. long time pending
16:07:52 [pchampin]
16:07:56 [csarven]
... rather than going through each, does anyone have something to report on one of these actions?

16:09:34 [csarven]

AndyS: What were the questions?
16:11:05 [csarven]
pchampin: Some were.. you'll have describe ??? and SPARQL.
16:11:18 [csarven]
... how do we deal with multiple ??? I've also pointed him to the blogpost.
16:11:27 [csarven]
... I hope that explains our positions and some patterns dealing with that.
16:11:29 [gkellogg]
16:11:37 [csarven]

s/describe ??? and/describe the semantics of
16:12:26 [csarven]
... We believe that there is enough interest in the RDF-star in the community. So, that's my position and shared by other people here.
16:12:42 [csarven]
... There is enough interest in RDF-star and join the WG.

ack gkellogg
16:13:01 [csarven]
gkellogg: The issue was publishing the final report on the CG page.
16:13:22 [csarven]
... It sounds like his objections to ??? were the charter for the WG is a different issue.
16:13:37 [csarven]
pchampin: When I asked him again for the report, he didn't object to the report. I think it'll be done soon.
16:13:44 [csarven]
pchampin: Does that answer the question?
16:14:03 [csarven]
gkellogg: I'm wondering if there is a need ot take the report wider to the group.
16:14:18 [csarven]
^ was AndyS?
16:14:31 [csarven]
gkellogg: The reason to publish was to get wider review.
16:14:42 [csarven]
... but those issues can be separated regarding the charter.
16:14:59 [csarven]
... It is like you said, what comes first the cart or the horse.. important to get the report out.
16:15:09 [csarven]
... Not sure there is more to do for the report to have it published.
16:15:29 [csarven]
pchampin: I didn't perceive any concerns or problems with the publishing of the CG report.
16:15:51 [csarven]
gkellogg: This is input for the WG .. not an invitation to rubber stamp.
16:16:15 [csarven]
pchampin: Creating the WG was the point. To be transparent, I mentioned the proposed charter and also wrt chairing.
16:16:36 [csarven]
... sent a probe to danbri with that respect. Whether this thing was ready to create a WG.. and therefore moving to REC.
16:17:13 [csarven]
gkellogg: It sounds like danbri is a gatekeeper... but okay to have the voice.. and we need to use the process and not up to danbri to hold the process.
16:17:15 [csarven]
pchampin: I agree.
16:17:30 [csarven]
pchampin: I'll probably encourage danbri to have the discussion on the mailing list.
16:17:56 [csarven]
... Whether that's the RDF-star mailing list or something else.. we do need ot have it soon to broaden the discussion for the SW community at large.

16:19:18 [csarven]

Andy to add missing SPARQL documents
16:20:06 [csarven]
pchampin: Issue 13 was completed. Thank you AndyS. I've merged the PR already.
16:20:27 [csarven]
... There is another document ??? not added. Was that deliberate?
16:20:48 [csarven]
AndyS: I can't remember. Remember looking at them.. But there is no problem with TSV or CSV? It is fine.
16:21:01 [csarven]
pchampin: I did add them as well.. but did not consider them in the report.
16:21:21 [pchampin]
16:21:26 [csarven]
... How to best quote triples in teh CSV. Even if it doesn't support it, it should be said. For the group decide.
16:21:33 [csarven]
... We can close that one (issue 13)
16:21:36 [csarven]
... after the call
16:21:44 [pchampin]
16:21:52 [pchampin]
add explicit reference to RDF primer
16:22:08 [pchampin]
16:22:36 [csarven]
... add explicit reference to RDF primer. So in the list of non-normative reports ???
16:22:51 [csarven]
... I pushed this PR shortly before the call. If you can review, please do.
16:22:53 [pchampin]
16:22:57 [pchampin]
liaisons with other groups
16:23:07 [csarven]
... Addressed issue 10 for liaison with other groups
16:23:27 [csarven]
... with property schema WG. Also related ISO group for property extension ???
16:23:44 [pchampin]
16:23:50 [csarven]
... I added the links .. made another PR 18.
16:24:09 [olaf]
s/property schema WG/Property Graph schema WG at LDBC
16:24:16 [csarven]
... Not so much for the CG itself but to include anything that would come up during the chartering process or the lifetime of htis group.
16:24:43 [olaf]
s/property extension ???/Property Graph extension for SQL
16:24:58 [gkellogg]
16:24:59 [csarven]
... What I had in mind was for the upcoming RDF canonicalization. We can't point yet but hopefully it exists. Starts to exists before/at the time with this WG. So I've put a link to the proposed charter ??? RDF-DEV
16:25:01 [gkellogg]
16:25:03 [csarven]
... Any questions/comments?
16:25:06 [pchampin]
ack gkellogg
16:25:39 [csarven]
gkellogg: There seems to be activity in SPARQL 1.2 group.. I'm not sure where it is with regards to a charter. If that's something that needs to be coordinated or ??? overalapped.
16:25:52 [csarven]
pchampin: Or the more we claim for the spARQL specification
16:26:18 [csarven]
TallTed: I haven't seen ??? We should say if SPARQL 1.2 happens we should coordinate.
16:26:22 [csarven]
pchampin: Good point. I'll action myself.
16:26:28 [pchampin]
ACTION pchampin to add liaison with Sparql 1.2 CG
16:26:56 [TallTed]
s/???/anything like movement toward a SPARQL 1.2 WG charter./
16:27:00 [pchampin]
16:27:09 [pchampin]
16:27:17 [pchampin]
16:27:59 [pchampin]
csarven: may have missed some steps in the creation of the charter,
16:28:08 [pchampin]
... but I noticed that RDFa 1.2 was not mentioned
16:28:29 [pchampin]
... while a majority of concrete syntax are lentioned
16:28:34 [pchampin]
16:28:59 [pchampin]
... Was this discussed previously? What are the requirements to have this included?
16:29:52 [pchampin]
... RDFa 1.0 and 1.1 are widely adopted.
16:30:18 [csarven]
16:30:26 [gkellogg]
16:30:27 [csarven]
pchampin: We have discussed RDFa and CSVW.
16:30:46 [csarven]
... There are so many RDF related specs and we can't possibly commit to all.
16:30:58 [csarven]
... We decided to focus on the WGs that RDF and SPARQL.
16:31:11 [csarven]
... it'd be a shame not to address this where people are interested in order to progress
16:31:26 [csarven]
... ew.g., some of us have worked with JSON-LD-Star.. and managed by another WG
16:31:39 [gkellogg]
16:31:57 [csarven]
... the decision was to leave the door open by mentioning that the group could adopt during its lifetime, requiring re-chartering.
16:32:10 [csarven]
... people interested in working on it should come to us.
16:32:11 [ora]
16:32:17 [gkellogg]
16:32:21 [pchampin]
ack ora
16:32:24 [csarven]
... including it in the initial charter would be ???
16:32:37 [csarven]
ora: there are serialization syntaxes and there is almost like a one way dependency
16:32:51 [csarven]
... so rdf-star doesn't need to depend on a particular serialization
16:33:04 [csarven]
... we work on the model so the key issues give the community at least one serialization syntax
16:33:13 [csarven]
... and other people can volunteer on the other stuff
16:33:23 [csarven]
... but rdf-star is not held back
16:33:43 [pchampin]
ack gkellogg
16:33:44 [csarven]
pchampin: csarven's concern was ... indeed that I also agree with this dependency thing as you've put it.
16:33:56 [csarven]
gkellogg: We did discuss this with regards to JSON-LD
16:34:14 [csarven]
... there is a WG active - not presently ???
16:34:27 [csarven]
... which could get together to work on JSON-LD to include these features
16:34:30 [AndyS]
16:34:57 [csarven]
... we also discussed RDFa CSVW.. there is no WG that's active within their scope. It seems like for a new WG to be chartered.
16:34:59 [Fabio]
[leaving]. Will keep on reading the scribe. Sorry. Ciao!
16:34:59 [TallTed]
It may be worth noting that "these serializations were chosen for our focus because..." in the charter doc, and being more explicit about accepting/adopting submissions of specs for other serializations
16:35:15 [csarven]
... they could be included by recharter RDF-star WG.. but there need sto be preliminary work.
16:35:33 [csarven]
... JSON-LD ??? there is improvements that can be done
16:35:44 [csarven]
... I'm interested in seeing what we can do to improve support for RDFa.
16:35:53 [csarven]
... There are supports for graph in RDFa
16:36:29 [csarven]
... There are serialization formats tha tthe WG did not do.. the best place for that work to happen in a group with intersted people
16:36:42 [csarven]
16:36:54 [pchampin]
ack AndyS
16:36:57 [csarven]
pchampin: The idea was to keep the charter tight so that the AC find it realistic
16:37:55 [csarven]
AndyS: I agree with the discussions so far. Within the charter.. there is a rather ??? with the specs. And ... might be active. When the group picks up too much. Exit from the group ??? RDFa related to RDF-star. It could be added to the RDF-star itself.
16:38:04 [csarven]
^ I'm sorry I couldn't scribe that well
16:38:37 [pchampin]
ack csarven
16:38:39 [pchampin]
16:38:44 [TallTed]
might limit to "editorial errata" which won't require implementation changes so won't put a major gate on exiting CR
16:39:27 [AndyS]
AndyS: The work on RDF Core/SPARQL WG specs includes errata work.
16:39:43 [pchampin]
csarven: is it a requirement that such work should be part of a working group ?
16:40:16 [ora]
RDF/XML should just die.
16:40:29 [pchampin]
... compared to RDF/XML, other syntaxes are more useful.
16:40:40 [pchampin]
... Again, RDFa is largely used.
16:40:54 [AndyS]
There are people that use and like it. YMMV.
16:41:12 [csarven]
16:41:46 [csarven]
pchampin: RDF/XML was a deliverable of the RDF group.. so we added notes saying that provided that there is enough involvement
16:42:11 [csarven]
... to answer you questoin on the necessity of a WG.. with JSON-LD there is a group that could take care of the JSON-LD star or 1.2
16:42:18 [csarven]
... That's not the case for RDFa or CSW..
16:42:37 [csarven]
... Our view is that this group will happily adopt if people want to work on it.
16:42:50 [csarven]
... and will consider bringing it to REC state.
16:44:44 [csarven]
AndyS: Could be through RDFa CG
16:46:25 [csarven]
gkellogg: There is not going to be critical mass behind RDF/XML to put something together but there could easily be for RDFa 1.2. For if CG is established, settle on syntax, publish a report, then that could be a reasonable thing for RDF-star WG to adopt after charter update
16:49:59 [csarven]
gkellogg: There is language in charters time allowing, the group will consider "these" documents..
16:50:27 [csarven]
.. .the question is that the type of thing that should be added in rechartering.. or would that complicate what's there
16:50:44 [csarven]
... IMO ??? could all obe in that category if time allowed.
16:50:50 [AndyS]
AndyS: There isn't anything blocking RDFa discussion either on RDF-DEV or here.
16:50:54 [csarven]
... There may not be enough time for us to get to RDF/XML /s
16:51:13 [csarven]
pchampin: We can continue on the github issue.
16:51:24 [csarven]
... The choice was a bit arbitrary
16:51:30 [csarven]
... Initially for RDF and SPARQL WG
16:51:37 [csarven]
... and leave an opening for rechartering
16:51:45 [csarven]
... it is arbitrary but it allows us to draw the line
16:51:51 [csarven]
... and be open to new stuff if it comes up
16:52:14 [csarven]
gkellogg: To what AndyS suggested to open up discussion on RDFa and take up call time.. or establish a new group for that?
16:52:32 [csarven]
AndyS: If they're interested that's fine. Not until now but we don't take up on others' interest
16:52:44 [csarven]
pchampin: csarven raised that as well
16:53:02 [csarven]
... We can see in the community to see if there is more interest.
16:53:42 [csarven]
... Just to be clear, this call and "task force" .. there is nothing formal about. We're from the RDF-DEV.. and for more focused discussion on RDF-star.. and this call and people here came up from shared interest to writ eup the report.
16:53:54 [csarven]
... the scope of the CG is larger so good to check
16:54:02 [csarven]
... we had to focus on getting things done
16:54:15 [csarven]
... yes, if people are interested, we can piggyback on this call to discuss
16:54:38 [csarven]
... so, bottom line is calling for people interested...
