ChrisW: Working Draft - frozen March 23 version
josb: possible confusion over
general framework vs. RIF Core dialect - not yet
... suggest changing intro text
<Hassan> It shouldn't
josb: doesn't present dialect itself
ChrisW: should RIF Core be a dialect?
mkifer: document presents more
than RIF Core, but much less than a dialect
... may confuse some readers
ChrisW: how important is this?
josb: might lead to a lot of confusion
<sandro> scribenick: mdean
Harold: represents first draft of dialect?
josb: no - doesn't say what a dialect is
ChrisW: maybe OK for first draft - elicit this type of feedback
<AlexKozlenkov> Why does it not represent the first draft of the RIF Core dialect?
mkifer: suggest jos send updated paragraphs
ChrisW: not for this Working
Draft - too late
... today approve for public release based on authors completing the actions agreed to at F2F5
... WD release process isn't instantaneous
... updated paragraphs available now?
josb: will send to list now
<josb> My phrasing suggestions: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rif-wg/2007Mar/0125.html
ChrisW: any other comments
Deborah: semantics of
multi-worded RIF conditions, type is used where signature or
sort would be expected - confusing
... will send email
mkifer: small comments from Alex
<Hassan> I received them as well Alex
Alex: just sent to Harold?
mkifer: issue (exists) sent to list
Alex: issue should be addressed in future Working Draft
<Harold> Alex sent:
<Harold> In 126.96.36.199, about the text “only to function terms that belong”. I do not fully understand that. ?v can be bound not necessarily to function terms but also primitive constants.
<Harold> In 188.8.131.52, I_F definition, it says I_F(d_1,…,d_k). This should read I_F(f)(d_1,…,d_k), otherwise I do not get it.
<Harold> Also the introduction says that the focus of WD1 is the condition language (not rules?). Is that so?
no other fixes/edits
sandro: current draft does not specify RIF Core? it just lays groundwork?
<Hassan> I second Jos's rewording -hak
taking a minute for everyone to read Jos's message
mkifer: never says that RIF Core is a rule language
<AlexKozlenkov> it looks like the overview is a bit of touch really
ChrisW: does seem like an omission
<Deborah_Nichols> +1 to what Michael says wrt RIF being a 'format' but not rule language
sandro: potentially contentious
<DaveReynolds> The Overview does say "A dialect is a rule language ..."
ChrisW: abstract seems OK
discussion of Jos's message
<Hassan> As an interchange language, readers will expect as least one full worked out *exchange* between two real-life rule languages... (say, Edinburgh Prolog and Colmerauer's Prolog III)
Harold: which will be presented in next version?
<josb> I'm fine with that
Harold: perhaps: will be developed
in future Working Drafts instead
... we do have a kind of draft of Core
Sandro: Jos's wording too dismissive of current draft
<Harold> The current document is a first draft of the RIF framework, sufficient
<Harold> for the specification of RIF Core, which will be presented in the next
<Harold> version of this document.
ChrisW: keep document as is
... architecture document should help clarify
... don't see this as a killer - but would like feedback from community
... accept typo fixes from Deborah and Alex
... straw poll on publishing current version as first Working Draft
... any anticipated objections?
Sandro recording votes - will send email later
