Re: PROV-ISSUE-1: a proposal to vote on

From: Kai Eckert <kai@informatik.uni-mannheim.de>
Date: Mon, 06 Jun 2011 13:44:26 +0200
Message-ID: <4DECBD9A.6070905@informatik.uni-mannheim.de>
To: public-prov-wg@w3.org
+1

(under the assumption that we agree on "thing" for the 
thing/entity/resource/subject of provenance, which sounds a little bit 
too physical for me. But that shouldn't be the point here.)

Regards,

Kai
