Re: Turtle support for WebID profiles


am i missing something with this turtle discussion?

if openRDF [1] for example already implemented a parser and writer,
i assume it is well supported and a common rdf serialization, no?

could you ask on the LinkedData list, or find some way of getting people 
there to vote? Well turtle support will get full support I believe, 
but the more difficult question is after that should one drop RDF/XML as a must 
support? Or should one have both? I don't find it difficult to do both. 

We should leave RDF/XML as a MUST (on verifier side), even for all its cons, most libs support it (I don't know of any RDF lib which support Turtle but RDF/XML for example). If anything, we could simply remove the ugly RDF/XML snippet from the spec. 

Ah that's a good idea. 

MUST support by consumer, deprecate for user. 

I like the idea.
