Dear all,

The charter [1] lists deliverables D1 'conceptual model' and D2  'formal model'.

For the former, we moved away from the 'conceptual model' terminology, and we refer to a data model PROV-DM.

For the latter, we seem to have endless confusion about what it really means, and what the difference is with
semantics.   Also, as Graham pointed out, it is not obvious why a developer would have to look at a formal model
document.

1. Given this confusion, Paul and I would like to propose that we drop the terminology 'Formal Model'.
  Can you express your support or disagreement for this proposal?

2. Assuming we adopt the proposal, what should the document title become, we leave it to authors/editors to decide.
  Group members may also want to make suggestions, and we could vote on them during teleconference.

  To get the ball rolling: 'semantic web representation/model/serialization of provenance'

Cheers,
Luc
