I have a problem related to mistakenly tomstoned PURLs: I wanted to replace a bunch of individual PURLs for different resources (http://purl.org/olia/olia.owl
, .../system.owl, etc.) by a single PURL (http://purl.org/olia
) with partial redirect. In this way, any subsequent updates would have been a lot easier.
Of course, the individual purls overrode the partial redirect, so I thought tombstoning them might be a good idea. It turned out not to be ... and it turned out to be irreversible ...
So, I was wondering if this behavior, preferring tombstoned purls over partial redirects (where both are applicable) is intended, and if so, I would suggest to document it somewhere more prominently. If not, however, this would be software-related request ;) Another idea of course, would be to provide some interface for untombstoning PURLs.
Thanks a lot,
BTW: I used the feedback form already and described the problem, asking to untombstone the individual purls (as deletion is not possible).
