Call For Implementations

From Provenance WG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Thank you for your interest in the PROV candidate recommendations. To become a Final Recommendation, the PROV-WG needs to demonstrate that the PROV model has been implemented. Therefore, if you have used the PROV standards in your application, we really want to hear about your experience.

In particular, we would like to know what part of the standards you implemented and whether there are parts that do not work for you. Your feedback will help us to identify any implementation issues you may have and address them where possible.

In addition, the information you provided will be compiled into the PROV Implementation Report, which will be the main decision factor for PROV to become W3C Recommendations. As a result, your implementations (along with their URLs and contact information) will be included in our report hosted on the World Wide Web Consortium site.

How to report your implementation

To tell us about your application, please use an appropriate questionnaire below: The following surveys have been closed

It is worth noting that you need not implement the entire specification before telling us about it, and we will include all implementations we receive in the Implementation Report (see a draft version). In addition, please beware that the report will be publicly available on the W3C's website and by providing us with information about your applications you agree for it to be published and referenced in the PROV Working Group’s documents.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where I can learn more about the PROV specifications?

How can I suggest changes to the PROV specifications?

Please email the PROV Working Group with your suggestions at public-prov-comments@w3.org

Notes: Before emailing us about issues in the PROV documents, it could be useful to check our responses to issues that have been previously reported.

How can I revise my report?

You can always edit your report(s) at a later time by going back to the relevant questionnaire again (links above) using the login/email details that you previously provided.

I can't submit my report for PROV-CONSTRAINTS

There is a bug of the questionnaire system which prevents submitting a large list of test case file names. If this happens, please fill in the rest of the questionnaire and email the list of pass and fail test cases to tdh@ecs.soton.ac.uk separately. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Can I request to keep my information confidential?

All documents produced by the PROV Working Group are in the public domain. Therefore, we unfortunately will not be able to keep your reports confidential. If you no longer wish to share your report with the public, you can go back to the relevant questionnaires and completely remove your entry (the option for this is at the bottom of each questionnaire). However, we will not be able to revise our implementation report once it is formally released.

Will I need to provide proofs of compliance for my implementation?

No. We solely rely on the information you provide in the above questionnaires to compile our implementation report.

Spread the word

We encourage you to talk about and encourage others to implement PROV. Our Twitter hashtag is #provwg and we hope that you talk about us. If you're using PROV, link to the document and use the PROV logo
