16:41:38 <tlebo> topic: prov-o
<luc>Summary: We discussed progress on the ontology alignment and the use of James rules for systematically mapping prov-dm constructs to the ontology. The team is on track to release the ontology at the next teleconference.  Satya agreed to produce an outline of the structure of the new prov-o document, taking into account best practice in the semantic web community. Reviewers of the prov-o ontology were lined up: Luc, Paolo, EricS, StephenC (TBC). Any other reviewer welcome! They will be asked to review the ontology when available.
16:25:01 <Luc> can we see this list of term?
16:25:10 <tlebo> satya: reviewing wd3, have terms to map, nothing else to report. Mike finished blog post.
16:25:20 <tlebo> satya: simple exmaple of how to use prov-o. sent update yesterday 
16:25:21 <Luc> can we see the blog post example?
16:25:26 <tlebo> (I didn't see update)
16:25:42 <tlebo> (ok)

16:26:18 <Luc> q?
16:26:35 <tlebo> q+ to note that I think a different format would be better, will try to address on email and skype.
16:26:36 <dgarijo> although that list has to be merged with Khalid's
16:26:41 <tlebo> luc: wasAssociatedWith - why not?
16:26:50 <tlebo> luc: quite important.
16:27:14 <Luc> q?

16:27:17 <Zakim> tlebo, you wanted to note that I think a different format would be better, will try to address on email and skype.

16:28:26 <tlebo> luc: good to see that we can be systematic in translation.
16:28:35 <tlebo> luc: issues in DM?
16:29:27 <Zakim> +??P25
16:29:39 <satya> @GK: yes, it is a discussion board
16:29:50 <Mike> Mike has joined #prov
16:30:09 <tlebo> luc: would be good for dm and provo teams to discuss
16:30:16 <Zakim> + +1.443.708.aaee
16:30:27 <tlebo> tlebo: we can do that after the owl file and mapping page
16:30:33 <tlebo> luc: we need the HTML, too.
16:30:47 <Luc> q?
16:30:53 <jcheney> @GK: Tim's point I think is that the wiki page should be DM-centric in order to aid producing the deliverable(s)
16:30:54 <tlebo> luc: we need a doc that semweb community will look at after the primer.
16:31:20 <khalidbelhajjame> We also need to thing about the structure of the document
16:31:23 <khalidbelhajjame> think
16:31:32 <tlebo> satya: having concensus on owl file will aid HTML writing.
16:31:45 <tlebo> luc: but thought on how to structure doc before hand.
16:31:56 <tlebo> (I think we agreed to get rid of this laundry list approach in the HTML)
16:32:09 <dgarijo> @khalid : +1.
16:32:47 <tlebo> luc: ivan's feedback after f2f. many ontologies that were well presented. OPMV, FOAF, (not enough examples in foaf html)
16:33:02 <tlebo> luc: good to think about how the HTML will be structured.
16:33:05 <Luc> q?
16:33:32 <GK_> (I've an idea that some of the FOAF/OPMV content is auto-generated from the OWN description)
16:33:45 <tlebo> luc: DMers shouldn't impose the provo html structure.
16:34:09 <tlebo> luc: action on structure of provo doc?
16:34:28 <tlebo> satya: will take action on structure of prov-o html
16:34:53 <tlebo> action: satya to design structure of provo-html
16:34:53 <trackbot> Created ACTION-63 - Design structure of provo-html [on Satya Sahoo - due 2012-02-16].

16:35:01 <trackbot> Sorry, couldn't find user - to
16:35:29 <tlebo> luc: ivan suggested that it is usful to line up reviewers of the draft.
16:35:30 <GK_> @luc: that action got created with 16-feb due date, not 23rd
16:35:46 <tlebo> luc: need reviewers to provo html 
16:35:51 <tlebo> luc: volunteers?
16:36:00 <Luc> q?
16:36:12 <estephan> I will review
16:36:18 <tlebo> satya: think it would be helpful to have DMers review, too.
16:36:36 <tlebo> luc: volunteers?
16:36:56 <tlebo> luc: zednick?
16:36:58 <GK_> (I probably shall review it, but I'm reluctant to make formal commitment at this time, until it's actually available.)
16:37:13 <tlebo> @etephan said he would, too
16:37:21 <tlebo> luc: simon?
16:37:34 <zednik> I am willing to review prov-o
16:37:36 <satya> perhaps both Simon and Yolanda?
16:37:38 <estephan> +1
16:37:44 <tlebo> smiles: sure, from pov of primer
16:38:17 <zednik> too many stephans ;-)
16:38:23 <tlebo> (too many "steph*n"s)
16:39:08 <davidschaengold> I'll volunteer as well to review it

16:40:31 <tlebo> estephan: hwo to give feedback?
16:41:07 <tlebo> luc: we need to know someone looked at it.
16:41:18 <satya> @Eric: raise issues?
16:41:21 <Luc> q?
16:41:38 <tlebo> topic: prov-dm
<Luc>Summary: Luc explained how the prov-dm editors were  working on their working copy. They are in the process of dividing the prov-dm document into three parts: lightweight intro to prov-dm, upgrade path to proper provenance, prov-asn syntax.  Initial working drafts for part 1 and 3 are in mercurial. The intent is to have all parts available by next teleconference.  We lined up some reviewers for these documents: TimL,  EricS, GK, Daniel (tentative), MacTed(tentative), Curt(tentative). Any other reviewer welcome! They will be asked to review these documents when available.
16:41:57 <Luc>
16:42:12 <tlebo> luc: wiki page on current activities
16:42:20 <tlebo> luc: trying to adderss action 62 - simplify
16:42:41 <tlebo> luc: created new directory in hg
16:42:53 <Luc>
16:43:04 <tlebo> luc: welcome to look, but still in progress.
16:43:11 <tlebo> luc: decided to structure into 3 parts
16:43:45 <tlebo> luc: part 1: model based on no "Thing"
16:44:07 <tlebo> luc: part 1: support scruffy prov (so no attributes, charact intervals, constraints)
16:44:11 <tlebo> luc: all moved out of doc
16:44:20 <tlebo> luc: dropped Account Record.
16:44:27 <GK_> q+ to ask if the first part will be anything more than a summary of the ASN expression types
16:44:42 <Luc>
16:44:51 <tlebo> luc: part 3: ASN and grammar
16:45:06 <tlebo> luc: part 2: "upgrade path"
16:45:15 <tlebo> (from scruffy to proper prov)
16:45:32 <GK_> Would prefer to see it described as a "refinement path" rather than "upgrade"
16:45:36 <Luc> q?
16:45:38 <tlebo> luc: first version of this draft by next telecon
16:46:11 <dgarijo> yesterday on the DC call, Thom Baker said that he really liked the distinction between scruffy/proper provenance.
16:46:14 <tlebo> gk: part 1 any mor than summary of expression types?
16:46:20 <tlebo> gk: want it that simple.
16:46:20 <Luc>

16:47:49 <Zakim> GK_, you wanted to ask if the first part will be anything more than a summary of the ASN expression types
16:48:15 <tlebo> gk: looks closer to waht group was asked to do.
16:48:45 <tlebo> luc: happy with anyone to look at and comment on (do not raise issues)
16:49:06 <tlebo> luc: if have commetns, write notes on page and send email notifying
16:49:30 <Luc> q?
16:49:40 <tlebo> luc: comments?
16:49:46 <MacTed> Zakim, unmute me
16:49:46 <Zakim> MacTed should no longer be muted
16:49:46 <GK_> I'll probably hold off detailed review untilk that 1st draft is available for co9mment
16:50:03 <tlebo> macted: which URLs are which part of breakout

16:51:55 <Curt> I'll try 
16:52:33 <tlebo> topic: coordinate a release prov-dm,  prov-o and prov-primer
<Luc>Summary: We discussed a joint release of the next set of working drafts for prov-dm, prov-o, prov-primer.  It was agreed that concepts in prov-dm were stable (though presentation was being worked on).  Satya believes that the prov-o html document can be ready two weeks after the ontology has been agreed on. Simon felt the primer could be updated with the new ontology terms, shortly after the ontology has been frozen.
16:52:54 <tlebo> reading list: primer, prov-o, dm
16:53:09 <tlebo> luc: comments on joint release
16:53:10 <tlebo> ?
16:53:16 <Luc> q?
16:53:17 <smiles> q+
16:53:40 <Luc> ack smiles
16:53:59 <tlebo> smiles: from f2f, we have a schedule. prov-o owl next week and html week after.
16:54:05 <tlebo> ... primer 8 march.
16:54:27 <tlebo> ... then 1-2 weeks from that (20 march)
16:54:36 <tlebo> luc: we've slipped by 1 month
16:54:57 <tlebo> luc: timetable discussed at f2f
16:55:06 <tlebo> ... 4th draft 1 march
16:55:13 <tlebo> ... 5th draft 1 apri.l
16:55:30 <tlebo> ... release of all 1 april?
16:55:55 <tlebo> ... concerned.
16:56:00 <Luc> q?
16:56:00 <tlebo> ... all docs earlier?
16:57:02 <tlebo> satya: last feb first march
16:57:05 <GK_> I personally think we need to get the simplified DM nailed and stabilized (in broad principle) before charging too fast with the other docs.
16:57:14 <tlebo> (I think first week march would be reasonable)
16:57:23 <Zakim> -[IPcaller.a]
16:57:33 <satya> @GK: I agree
16:58:01 <Luc> q?
16:58:12 <tlebo> smiles: if we agree on the owl, primer by end of feb. but what if there are concerns on the owl?
16:58:30 <dgarijo> I don't think that the primer is going to change a lot..

17:00:41 <smiles> Apologies, but I will have to leave in a minute...
17:01:01 <tlebo> luc: we need to close issues.
17:01:11 <GK_> I'm fine that there may be outstanding issues (near term); but the DM sets a general direction that we're all trying to follow
