Subject: Re: [oslc-core] Core Vocabulary and Resource Shapes ready for TC review

A bit more for today:
6. Section 6.1, overview, paragraph about "The box labelled 'Property'":
This says "The arrow labeled "property" represents the containment relation between a shape and its defined properties."
I believe in the context of either UML or LDP, the word "containment" implies single ownership. Do we know if that is what is intended here? I would expect oslc:Property resources to be able to be re-used by multiple shapes, therefore not "contained" within the shape in the sense of UML or LDP containment.
Although the property is required to be inline, both the v2 document and the W3C submission have with "value-type" set to "Resource", which should allow it to have a URI, which allows it to be re-used, especially between two shapes in the same document (which would not require duplication of the single inlined resource).
7. Next paragraph, starting "Each oslc:Property":
Where it says "and the constraints on its use within any resource of the given shape". I think this would be more accurate to say "and the constraints on its use within any resource that the given shape applies to", as this explicitly refers to the "applicability" term, and therefore indirectly to section 6.1. The wording "of the given shape" could be ambiguous.

> 2. OSLC Resource Shape 3.0: https://tools.oasis-open.org/version-control/svn/oslc-core/trunk/specs/resource-shape.html
1. In the first paragraph in the introduction, the LDP reference is not a link (and has a double opening square bracket: "[[LDP]").
2. Do we want the recommendations for extensions in there? We could always link back to the W3C submission instead of duplicating them. I don't think they are particularly useful to people writing implementations - I see them as more useful to groups such as us or the Data Shapes WG.
3. Section 2, terminology, "applicable": It states how to determine if a shape is "applicable", but doesn't say what the consequence of that is. Also, this (along with the "oslc:describes Property" section under 8.1) suggests that a Resource Shape cannot be used with any resource at all if the shape does not have an oslc:describes property, yet that property is stated as allowing Zero-or-many values. Section 6.2 allows for a shape with no oslc:describes value to be applicable to any resources that is "associated" with it.
I suggest that we remove the criteria of being "applicable" from that definition (as it's currently incorrect, and is too complicated to summarise briefly) and link to section 6.2 instead, and then state only the consequence of applicability in the terminology section. Such as:
"applicability: For all shapes that "apply to" a resource, that resource should satisfy the constraints defined by those shapes. See section 6.2 for the definition of what shapes apply to a resource, and what it means if multiple shapes apply to a single resource."
4. Section 2, terminology, "association": This also doesn't state the consequence of association. I'd leave the criteria for association here, as it's simple enough, but perhaps also insert "The shapes associated with a resource are the set of shapes to be checked for applicability." before "Not all the associated shapes are necessarily applicable."
5. Section 5, requirements. The second paragraph (which has been added into what was taken from the W3C submission) appears out of place. The first paragraph is introducing the list that follows the second paragraph. The second paragraph sound like it belongs in the abstract or introduction.
That's as far as I've got for now. Unfortunately that means I haven't got to the main part of the document...
I intend to finish reviewing this document and also check what feedback I've already given for the delegated dialogs document, but I'm not sure I'll get anything more done before the meeting this week.

Subject: [oslc-core] Core Vocabulary and Resource Shapes ready for TC review
Date: Tue, Dec 22, 2015 5:14 PM
OSLC Core 3.0 draft documents are ready for TC review:

1. Core Vocabulary: https://tools.oasis-open.org/version-control/svn/oslc-core/trunk/specs/core-vocab.html

This update includes the ResourceShapes for common properties from OSLC Core 2.0 and other OSLC Core 3.0 common properties. It also provides the complete OSLC Core 3.0 vocabulary.

The approach used to capture common Dublin Core, RDF, RDFS, FOAF and OSLC properties was to use a resource shape CommonProperties which has no oslc:describes property. This is supported by OSLC Resource Shapes 2.0, and is intended to describe properties that could be applied to any resource. This is a proposed resolution to issue OSLCCORE-43 that:
1. doesn't define any root OSLC resource
2. doesn't require any of the properties - they are all optional
3. uses a uniform way of displaying properties in the specs using ReSpec
4. provides the common properties in a machine readable Turtle file like any other shape properties.

Unfortunately ReSpec does not yet support ResourceShapes that do not include oslc:describes, see issue OSLCCORE-55. As a work around, CommonProperties oslc:describes is set to oslc:Any in order to get the shapes tables to render properly. That will be removed when the ReSpec defect is fixed.

2. OSLC Resource Shape 3.0: https://tools.oasis-open.org/version-control/svn/oslc-core/trunk/specs/resource-shape.html

We decided that in order to maintain compatibility with OSLC v2.0, and recognizing significant use by existing products, we must continue to support OSLC Resource Shapes, with other LDP constraint languages such as SHACL as additional options. I had considered how best to include ResouceShapes into the OSLC Core 3.0 specifications including:
1. simply referencing the current OSLC Core 2.0 Common Properties
2. migrating OSLC Core 2.0 Common Propertiesinto the OSLC Core 3.0 vocabulary: core-vocab.html
3. utilizing the W3C Resource Shape 2.0 draft specification with the updated content and descriptions

I compared the W3C Resouce Shape 2.0 draft with OSLC Core 2.0 Common Properties and found them to be completely compatible. In order to leverage the great work Arthur did in cleaning up Resource Shapes 2.0, I decided to migrate the W3C draft to OASIS and include it as part of the OSLC Core 3.0 multi-part specifications. I also extracted the resource shapes and properties from the two documents into new ResouceShapes-shape.ttl and resource-shape-vocab.ttl files. These files are used in the resource-shape.html draft specification to generate the properties tables using ReSpec.

Core Vocabulary as well as Core Overview now refer to the new OSLC Resource Shape 3.0 draft.

This completes the TC draft specifications for OSLC Core 3.0 and OSLC Change Management 3.0 which refers to OSLC Core 3.0 and represents a use of Core for further validation. Once the TC reviews are done and the final edits are completed, these working drafts can be submitted for public review.

As always, send editorial comments to this mailing list, and raise any significant issues in the issues list: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/oslccore.
