ISSUE-70: PAQ document uses inconsistent terminology for "provenance"


PAQ document uses inconsistent terminology for "provenance"

Accessing and Querying Provenance
Raised by:
Graham Klyne
Opened on:
(11) The whole document is inconsistent in how it calls what we want to
access. Sometimes it uses "provenance information", sometimes "provenance
data", and sometimes just "provenance". For instance, section 2 contains all
three. The document should be consistent and, thus, use only a single term.
I don't know whether the Model TF agrees on something that we may adopt
here. If not, I suggest "provenance description".

I closed this issue. The latest revision of prov-aq now consistently uses the term provenance information through out.
