This issue is about the use of $this in aggregations. There was a proposal on the WG wiki to close issue-208 as addressed in the edit described in https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-shapes/2016Nov/0027.html <https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-shapes/2016Nov/0027.html>. The edit was made in November 2016.

By the time the WG got to deciding on formally closing this issue in January 2017, the edit mentioned above was superseded by the removal of the sentence about aggregation from the spec.

When editors explained this, the resolution was updated with “-made obsolete”, so the WG decision was to close the issue as first addressed by the edit and then, with further changes in the spec, made obsolete.

If you still see an issue in this area, please describe it based on the current content of the document.
