I notice that in the latest draft that there is an informative section on
HTTP PATCH.  While this is informative and so (currently) not mandated by
the specification it seems a little vague on what PATCH should actually do,
the following text seems to imply that a PATCH request would contain SPARQL
Update command(s) in the body of the request but doesn't say so specifically


With PATCH, however, the enclosed entity contains a set of instructions
describing how the RDF knowledge residing on the origin server should be
modified to produce a new version.


What is the WG's thinking/intentions with regards to PATCH, will it become
normative in later drafts of the specification and is it intended as a
mechanism to allow SPARQL Update to be made using the protocol?


Best Regards,


Rob Vesse
