Hi Harold,

Thanks for your explanation. My point, however, is not from the
standpoint of confusing APS and PS; rather, it is from that of
the implementers who (like me and others) are desperately trying
to get the whole picture. I, for one, would really appreciate if
all the syntactic rules (whether PS or APS) were kept in one single
document, possibly under different headings and with all the caveats
that you have summarized. [BTW, if the current setup is confusing to
me, think about what it will look to someone unfamiliar with RIF and
its concepts!].

Anyways, my (CDN) $0.02...

Hi Hassan,
 
In the 26 Aug telecon we only decided to create a page for the *abridged* syntax.
Cf. ACTION: http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wg/track/actions/569
 
* The APS is not normative but just a compact notation,
which should become dialect-independent,
as needed, e.g., for UCR and the test cases.
* The APS is an optional addition only.
* The APS evolution can thus follow a different time-line,
so should be decoupled from the evolution of the other documents.
 
The PS, on the other hand, is an official part of documents such as BLD (in LC),
FLD, and Core. Each of these documents should stay independent from APS.
 
Best,
Harold

Hi Adrian,

Thanks for creating this page. Why not also include *all* PS syntactic rules
and conventions, whether abridged or not, explicitly including all the rules
imported from other W3C WG's documents (as used by Axel's EBNF rules for the
APS)? It'd be nice not to have to go back and forth between 4 or 5 documents
in order to have the whole picture.

Thank you.

I have created a page to document the abridged presentation syntax
