Hello,

As requested two weeks ago, I have updated the primer document to match the new ontology. The focus has been on consistency with the simplified data model, accounting for the comments from the F2F meeting, and including the least controversial missing concepts suggested by Luc and Stian (the latter task started but more to be added).

http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/default/primer/Primer.html

To this point, the changes are:

 *   Removed details about "things" and attributes from intuition on entities.
 *   Removed discussion of "eventually derived from" from intuition on derivation.
 *   Removed wasEventuallyDerivedFrom from example, and simplified example of derivation.
 *   Revised language and namespace prefix (ex1) to talk about a single worked example.
 *   Updated wasControlledBy to wasAssociatedWith.
 *   Changed (Qualified)Involvement classes and associated relations to match current ontology.
 *   Added actedOnBehalfOf in intuition and example.

Things that need to be done once we are clear that the PROV-DM and PROV-O are stable are: update/replace/remove the ER diagram copied from the DM, update the references to those documents.

Thanks,
Simon
