Hi all,

I propose the following section of the SKOS Semantics wiki draft as resolution of ISSUE-33 "Grouping Constructs" [1]:

<http://www.w3.org/2006/07/SWD/wiki/SKOS/Semantics/Grouping?action=recall&rev=2>

This section implements the "Minimal Fix" proposal [2], with a few additional axiomatic triples to make explicit the OWL typing of properties and the disjointness of skos:Collection and skos:ConceptScheme.

Note that this section does not address the issue of constructing a systematic hierarchical display, but delegates this responsibility to the SKOS Primer. Note also that the SKOS Primer section on grouping constructs is yet to be done, and that in particular I have not met Antoine's concerns below regarding nested collections.

However, I suggest we accept this resolution for now (because it does fix the actual issue), and raise a new issue regarding the representation and construction of systematic hierarchical displays.

ACTION: Alistair to propose minimal fix for resolution of issue 33 [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/05/22-swd-minutes.html#action09]

--done

ACTION: Alistair to propose resolution for Issue-33 (minimal fix) [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/06/12-swd-minutes.html#action12]

--done

Cheers,

Alistair.
