Yosi, Tim, Eric,

The SPARQL parser in cwm... it seems to be built from EricP's

|    if web:
|        File = urllib.urlopen('http://www.w3.org/2005/01/yacker/uploads/sparqlTest/bnf')
 -- http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/sparql/sparql-grammar.py

In the DAWG, the editors added a .jj version of the grammar
and are considering what other formats to publish.
  <- http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/rq23/parsers/
  <- http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/DataAccess/rq23/#sparqlGrammar

Is BNF the one we want/need?

EricP, have you generated a turtle/n3 version of the SPARQL grammar?

Yosi, what's the status of N3 parsers based on n3.n3? Do they
work yet? What about using that approach for the SPARQL parser?
