I have updated now both the ontology and wiki page to be in sync:

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/ProvRDF
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/default/ontology/ProvenanceOntology.owl


The only things in flux now is:

precise vs. inprecise in
http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/ProvRDF#Derivation
-- we have implemented Daniel's suggest in the OWL  (I did not add the
mysterious prov:steps - but perhaps Tim can add this, he seems to know
how. I was hoping we could do this as a subclass of prov:Derivation)


http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/ProvRDF#Time is empty  (but I've
modified the other usages of time to clarify prov:Instant and
prov:Time


prov:inXSDDateTime is not mentioned in ProvRDF - probably because the
usages of time literals in DM is a bit here and there?

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/ProvRDF#AlternateOf and
http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/ProvRDF#SpecializationOf - only the
unqualified version was mapped to OWL.



I've added various things to the OWL for qualified Derivation, etc. We
need to dicuss these more as they are all interrelated - but hopefully
this should be simpler now that we have OWL.

prov:Bundle is only partially mapped - we only have the class
prov:Bundle in owl.


I've added to ProvRDF the inferences that would come from the current
OWL - for instance if there's a prov:Agent it is always also
mentioned as a prov:Entity.


I've fixed some of the translations in ProvRDF where the IDs were
wrong, for instance it said "e1 prov:hadQualifiedDerivation id" - it
should have been e2 to match the scruffy version.
