18:49:00 <DanC> I gather the RDF/SQL stuff went to last call. Anybody looked at it? Do they have a test suite?
18:49:27 <DanC> http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9208
18:50:08 <DanC> the word "test" does not occur in http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-rdb-direct-mapping-20110920/ . not a good sign
18:50:34 <DanC> ah. via the WG home page I find http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/rdb2rdf/test-cases/
18:52:28 <DanC> "The purpose of the Test Cases is to verify and validate the specification of the R2RML language and Direct mapping. "
18:52:38 <DanC> what does it mean to verify a spec? or to validate it?
18:53:28 <DanC> "For each database we have:  ... The SQL script associated to the database (sql file). " associated in what way? do they mean: a SQL script that produces the database?
18:55:20 <DanC> "R2RML engine   A software that takes ..." hm. sounds like a translation from some other language. I guess I'll give some slack on editorial issues.
18:56:17 <DanC> bummer... spec references aren't hyperlinks
18:58:11 <DanC> bug in HTML version of direct mapping from D002-1table2columns1row. The ttl version looks ok.
18:58:33 <DanC> "10"^^<http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#integer>
18:58:37 <DanC> bother. please just write: 10
