Hi Folks,

I hope its not too late to wish everyone a happy new year.

RDFCore has had its first telecon of the year and this is a brief summary:

Issue rdfms-qname-uri-mapping


is a proposal to change the way that RDF maps qnames to uri's.  The WG has 
decided not to change this algorithm, on the grounds:

   o this would change the meaning of a lot of existing RDF

   o existing and revised implementations would produce different

   o existing code may generate illegal graphs for some rdf/xml.

Issue rdfms-reification-required


This was one raised by Stefan Kokkelink asking whether an RDF parser was 
required to always output bags for reified statements for every 
rdf:Description element.  The WG decided the answer is NO.

Issue rdfms-replace-value


The suggestion here was to rename rdf:value as rdf:toString.  The WG 
decided that the real issue is to clarify the semantics of 
rdf:value.  There will be no change to the name (for now).  The WG will try 
to clarify the meaning.
