Hi all,

The SPARQL 1.1 HTTP Graph Store Protocol [1] is in CR, but also its status notes that it "may be superseded".  I'm not sure what that means.  Its introduction says:
This document describes the use of HTTP operations for the purpose of managing a collection of RDF graphs. This interface is an alternative to the SPARQL 1.1 Update protocol. Most of the operations defined here can be performed using that interface, but for some clients or servers, this interface may be easier to implement or work with. This specification may serve as a non-normative suggestion for HTTP operations on RDF graphs which are managed outside of a SPARQL 1.1 graph store.
…which certainly sounds like an overlap with LDP to me and thus ISSUE-5 makes sense.  We should feel an obligation to align W3C Recommendations.

I propose that the LDP WG formally ask Chimezie Ogbuji (the editor) and the SPARQL WG to consider folding the requirements for the SPARQL 1.1 HTTP Graph Store Protocol specification into the LDP specification, and to withdraw the CR.  This would have the benefits of aligning the specification family, reducing duplication and satisfying a greater number of use cases.
