Hi all,
It seemed like there was not enough consensus in the telecon past thursday
about the last proposal.
If I remember correctly, Tim and Jun voted -1 for prov:wasAQuoteFrom.

So far, there have been the next proposals:

   - quoted: there was no consensus because it could imply an agent instead
   of an entity.
   - wasQuoteOf: we started with this definition, and moved away because it
   was confusing.
   - hadQuoteFrom: there was no consensus because it could imply that the
   quotation is partial.
   - wasAQuoteFrom: there was no consensus because "if it was a quote, then
   what is it now"?
   - isAQuoteFrom/isQuoteFrom: there has been no votes on this one, but it
   goes against having everything
   in past tense.
   - wasQuotedFrom: the current name and the only one I have concerns
   about, because
   the directionality of the property is not clear enough.

Just a small remark: the issue is about the name of the property. The
definition on DM is very clear.

During today's prov-o telecon Tim said that he proposed to move away from
wasQuoteOf in order
to have something similar to wasDerivedFrom. I would be happy to go back to
wasQuoteOf if there
is no other suggestion.

Thoughts, Jun, Tim?

Thanks,
Daniel
