Now that the holiday season is ending, maybe we can make some progress 
in the formal process for the SHACL spec. From the requirements listed 
by Arnaud below it seems that only the first item seems to be 
considerable work. It sounds like we are expected to close all formal 
tickets, see


Going through that list:

Substantial Syntax of Semantics issues:

- ISSUE-68: Mostly awaiting input from the SPARQL EXISTS group. Not sure 
how else to proceed.
- ISSUE-92: I failed several times to trigger progress.
- ISSUE-105: Technical question on syntax. We "just" have to pick one 
- ISSUE-131: sh:hasShape details, not sure how much is missing here
- ISSUE-155: Should these be generalized to have paths as parameters too?
- ISSUE-158: Not discussed yet, I suggest saying no
- ISSUE-170: Related to ISSUE-68

IMHO "uncritical" and Editorial

- ISSUE-71: Uncritical, just a proposal.
- ISSUE-93: [Editorial] No activity since 2015-10-29
- ISSUE-94: [Editorial] No activity since 2015-10-16
- ISSUE-106: [Editorial] No activity since 2015-10-30
- ISSUE-107: Minor detail, can be resolved either way
- ISSUE-111: High level, should IMHO be closed without action
- ISSUE-137: Additional, optional feature, needs someone to drive it or 
- ISSUE-140: Uncritical, has probably been addressed by now
- ISSUE-142: [Editorial] should IMHO be closed as addressed and outdated
- ISSUE-146: I believe this was done
- ISSUE-150: Can be closed based on recent resolution
- ISSUE-163: [Editorial]
- ISSUE-164: [Editorial] can be closed

For the lower portion, Dimitris and I have work to do. I will probably 
have more time from next week onwards - was very busy recently for the 
5.2 release of TopBraid (which BTW will have significantly improved 
SHACL features, which may help us get more feedback).
