ok, will do.. with the trailing / of course. Note [1] on why its
important to get this right early.


Satya - OK if I do a big search-replace? Or shall we wait for the
formal vote on the PROV-O tomorrow?


What name should we use for the document itself, WD-prov-o ?

Luc - you have gone for WD-prov-dm, right? I guess it would be good
for these to match the namespaces, as hinted by
http://www.w3.org/2005/07/13-nsuri - perhaps WD-prov will be a
document linking to prov-dm, prov-o, prov-aq (?), prov-primer etc.


So my suggested changes for the ontology:

https?://[a-z0-9/_.-]*/ProvenanceOntology.owl# ->  http://www.w3.org/ns/prov-o/
https?://[a-z0-9/_.-]*/crime.owl# ->  http://www.example.com/crime#


for instance:

  https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/file/4452648d5a9b/ontology/ProvenanceOntology.owl
  http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/tip/ontology/ProvenanceOntology.owl#wasControlledBy
  http://www.w3.org/PROV/CrimeFile#alice

(oh my, what a mess! ;-)

to:

  http://www.w3.org/ns/prov-o/
  http://www.w3.org/ns/prov-o/wasControlledBy
  http://www.example.com/crime#alice
