3. Review requirements, evaluating designs for Joseki, SeRQL, RDQL
ACTION: BryanT to evaluate Joseki

Some confusion about meaning of 4.4
ACTION: KendellC to elaborate on 4.4 in UC&R

General agreement that 3.4 doesn't cover queries with disjunctions.
ACTION: RobS will email to the group a proposed change to cover this.

Some disagreement that Joseki supports requirements 3.1, 3.2, 3.5 which
to the query language. AndyS says Joseki is an access protocol on top of
and can support arbitrary query languages (specified as a parameter in
the HTTP
request). So, 3.1, 3.2 don't apply.

Much discussion about intended meaning of 3.5 (i.e., should it apply to
the query
protocol rather than the query language).
ACTION: BryanT to draft possible new requirement on independence of
and query language.

ACTION: SteveH to write his experiences on bandwidth efficiency for
querying and
email to group.

ACTION: AndyS to evaluate SeRQL
ACTION: AndyS to revise SeRQL and resend

ACTION: EricP continues
