<pgroth> Summary: Luc presented the current status of the prov-dm and then discussed the plans for WD5 and highlighted the remaining issues left and also that an improved organization would be adopted in the document. The group approved the simplification of specializationOf, alternateOf and hasNote into binary relations.

16:20:39 <pgroth> q?
16:20:45 <GK> .. plan for WD5 to tackle remaining issues in the charter, (collections, ..., ..., derivation).  Also Jun's comments about structure of DM (why core + common relations).  Edxpect all core technical issues to be addressed by WD5.
16:20:52 <pgroth> q?
16:21:28 <pgroth>

16:25:05 <pgroth> Topic: PROV-O
<pgroth> Summary: an extensive status review of the prov-o progress was given. Tim presented a system for monitoring alignment based on the ProvRDF mappings page as well as progress in cataloging issues. 
16:25:07 <tlebo>
16:25:11 <GK> Next topic: PROV-O :
16:25:12 <jcheney> @GK: sorry, lots of us are all in same room at Dagstuhl so trying to avoid feedback
16:26:12 <GK> (Missed something) Progress on design for catalogue of examples.  Hoping for this second round to be final structure for examples.
16:26:43 <GK> .. issues with alignment between DM, Primer and PROV-O.  Have overview wiki page (link?)
16:27:01 <GK> .. fielding issues from reviewers
16:27:41 <GK> .. planning organization for next rev of prov-o HTML doc, following style of SiOC/FOAF/OPMV...

16:27:50 <Luc> q+
16:28:09 <Luc> q-
16:28:17 <GK> Luc: were you going to ask DM people to do something similar. 
16:28:40 <pgroth> q?
16:28:43 <GK> Tim: asking for annotations in document to facilitate comparison.  Will send email with details.
16:28:46 <GK> q+

16:29:41 <GK> Cool :)
16:30:02 <pgroth> q?
16:30:21 <GK> (GK question was about use of services: github for compare and RPI service for formatting; A: yes)
16:30:48 <dgarijo> @tlebo:wasquotedFrom not mentioned?
16:31:00 <tlebo> @gk, the commands in the email thread can be ignored. the wg can focus on the results at
16:31:29 <GK> Khalid: need to think about minimal ... examples for every concept and property ... 
16:32:00 <GK> ... details to help structure the ontology better.  Also structuring the ontology into "models" - what does this mean?
16:32:13 <GK> @tlebo I was curious about thye tooling :)
16:32:21 <pgroth> Topic: Example Catalog
<pgroth> Summary: Tim presented a comprehensive structure for creating and documenting examples. The group approved this structure and the notion of having such a catalog. Curt, Sam, Mike, Tim and Luc all agreed to populate the catalog.
16:32:32 <GK> Next Topic: example catalogue
16:32:50 <GK> Tim put together a structure for this
16:32:53 <tlebo>
16:34:40 <GK> Tim: link to description of proposed structure.  Section 3 what we're trying to organize, section 4 patterns of organization.  Use number to ensure uniqueness.  Title optional, might change if that helps.  Different directories for different formats.
16:34:53 <tlebo>
16:35:38 <GK> .. transcriptions section... above path indicates in and out formats, can be extended across multiple steps
16:36:04 <GK> .. query directory for query tests; compare for comparing output of queries
16:36:30 <GK> .. document at any level for adding notes
16:37:10 <GK> .. wiki namespace for references to wiki
16:37:33 <GK> .. links to web pages
16:37:41 <pgroth> q?
16:37:54 <pgroth> q?
16:38:02 <GK> @tlebo looked good to me first time, and getting better I think :)

16:39:07 <tlebo> thanks, I'll press forward and make some real examples that people can follow.
16:39:11 <khalidbelhajjame> Can we add a link to the wiki page created by Tim to the main wiki page
16:39:43 <pgroth> q?

16:40:52 <GK> Paul: Others may contribute later!

16:41:05 <tlebo> q+
16:41:10 <pgroth> ack tlebo 
16:41:40 <pgroth> Topic: open discussion around accounts
<pgroth> Summary: The group had a discussion about revisiting the F2F2 decision around simplification/removal of the account construct. It was agreed that this discussion could be reopened but with the proviso that this discussion not impact progress on the deliverables. It was also suggested that accounts may better be discussed in a note rather than a recommendation to ensure on time delivery.
16:41:44 <GK> Tim: asks to revisit F2F decision about accounts - believed we had removed account scoping, but still have bundles.
16:41:47 <pgroth> q?
16:42:45 <Luc> q+
16:43:16 <GK> GK: had same understanding, but wonderedf if "bundles" might be called "accounts".  But not strong feeling about this.
16:44:01 <GK> Luc: mechanism for giving name to provenance assertions is outside scope of DM.  But assume that mechanism exists.
16:44:06 <khalidbelhajjame> That's was my understanding too. When we need to speak about the provenance of a collection of provenance assertions, then we simply use Entity
16:44:22 <pgroth> q?
16:44:22 <GK> .. would like to see accounts in model, but OIK to compromose.
16:44:26 <pgroth> ack Luc
16:44:45 <pgroth> q?
16:44:55 <GK> I recall something along the lines of what Luc said, too (assume mechanism for labeling bundles)
16:45:26 <Luc> q+
16:45:30 <GK> Paul: fundamentally agreed to make accounts a lot simpler.
16:45:48 <GK> .. deferred discussion about where the mechanism might lie.
16:46:08 <pgroth> ack Luc
16:46:30 <GK> q+ to say I think the important thing may be to not prohibit private extensions for account-like functionality, but niot necessarily define now.
16:46:32 <tlebo> q+ to say that the can of worms was citing the asserter and having name scopes.
16:46:56 <GK> Luc: can we reproduce something similar to what ? did for ?
16:47:23 <tlebo> I think Luc was citing
16:47:30 <GK> .. what is the minimal notion of accout we can put in, without getting bogged down in details.
16:47:34 <tlebo> q?
16:47:36 <pgroth> ack GK
16:47:36 <Zakim> GK, you wanted to say I think the important thing may be to not prohibit private extensions for account-like functionality, but niot necessarily define now.
16:48:14 <pgroth> ack tlebo 
16:48:14 <Zakim> tlebo, you wanted to say that the can of worms was citing the asserter and having name scopes.
16:48:39 <GK> GK: thinks minimal notion of accounts may useful way move forwards
16:49:20 <GK> Tim: think accounts are victiome of name scope issue, but minimal notion may avoid this problem, as long as timeline not impacted.
16:49:22 <Luc> q+
16:49:29 <pgroth> ack Luc
16:49:58 <GK> Paul: if we can do this without impacting timeline, that's good, but must not cause delay.
16:50:06 <pgroth> q?
16:50:10 <GK> Luc: we could produce a NOTE on accounts if time runs out
