Face to Face Minutes


RESOLVED: to close the layering issue (5.3) as described in Consensus 
on semantic layering, provided the 2 technical bits of work can be 

ACTION Peter Patel-Schneider/Pat Hayes: draft OWL semantics,

5.9, 5.22]
   (Status update - see PFPS mail of Oct 16, 2002 - not yet in archive)

ACTION JeremyC: produce test cases (for semantics)

ACTION Ian Horrocks: send www-webont-wg a brief description of 
results of rules work on DAML.
ACTION Deb McGuiness: send OWL Lite issues presentation materials to 
W3C for the meeting record

RESOLVED: to close 5.2, endorsing existing an owl lite language 
subset and test class.

RESOLVED: to close 5.16 (again); to stay with minCardinality etc. as 
currently in WDs, with an editorial note suggesting presentation 
syntax names hasExactlyOne/hasAtMostOne/hasAtLeastOne/hasNone, and a 
link to rationale

Stanton. Enrico concurs.

ACTION Chris Welty: write rationale re 5.16 (sent 10Oct)  - DONE

someValuesFrom, allValuesFrom by consensus. ABSTAINING: Volz, MikeS, 
Frank, Nick, Chris, Jeremy

ACTION DebM: raise hasValue issue.

ACTION Frank: collect suggestions for replacement name (for owl lite, 
large, and fast)

RESOLVED: to close 5.1 per Consensus on semantic layering, noting 
stateCode test works in large owl.

ACTION Mike Dean: update reference to remove constraint that 
inversefunctional is objectproperty.

ACTION Dan Connolly: test case

ACTION Jos DeRoo: test case

ACTION Pat Hayes: be sure upcoming semantics draft addresses 5.22

ACTION Brian McBride: provide slides, summary for the record. (DONE 8 Oct)

Chairs noted that all issues marked RAISED are now OPEN.

RESOLVED: close 2.5 closed sets by using rdf:parseType="Collection"

statements. (see also: earlier discussion of 5.20)

ACTION: Mike to remove the sameXXX statements from owl reference

ACTION: Peter to generate test case to show disjointUnionOf can be 
rephrased w/existing constructs [and propose to close 5.21 by 
removing disjointUnionOf]

RESOLVED: to close 5.22 OWL:Class still needed per Consensus on 
semantic layering; yes, it's needed.
by consensus; Carroll abstaining.
