(see below for fwd'd announcement)

Interesting. Two worlds of searchy stuff collide. More interesting still   
is that they have explicit, if basic, support for thesauri.
 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-xquery-full-text-20040709/#ftthesaurusoption

I wonder if it would be worth thinking about how a localhost'd SKOS
service might be exposed in such an environment. Also I wonder whether
the folk behind this new spec might be interesetd to take a look at the
SKOS API. The current Xquery Full-text system looks very basic though.
It is vague on how thesauri are named, on how they're modelled, and on
what it means to search "with thesaurus".

SKOS aside, there are a number of thesaurus experts on this list who may
be interested to provide feedback on WD-xquery-full-text-20040709
anyway. It looks like a promising start...

cheers,

Dan

[apologies for multiple postings]

W3C's XML Query and XSL Working Groups have published two
drafts (one brand new, and one update) of the following specifications:

XML Query and XPath Full-Text (new)
  available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xquery-full-text/

XML Query and XPath Full-Text Use Cases (updated)
  available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlquery-full-text-use-cases


General discussion on the drafts can be done in the
www-ql@w3.org mailing list
(archives at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ql/ ).

Comments and feedback on the drafts solely addressed to the working
groups (like for instance, requests to open issues)
should instead be sent at public-qt-comments@w3.org
(archives at http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-query-comments/ )
with "[FT]" at the beginning of the subject field.
Note you can't subscribe to this list, as it's just used one-way to
send comments and issues (so, it is not a discussion forum, you can
use www-ql@w3.org for that).


Latest versions and news always available from the XML Query page
(http://www.w3.org/XML/Query ).
