Hi Richard,

to follow-up on our mails, after the joint telco of RDF WG and Prov WG, 
we agreed to have a joint task group with a seperate mailing list. In 
the Connection TF of the Provenance WG, we currently finalize an 
informal report [1] on group connections that are relevant for the work 
of the Provenance WG.

To increase the quality and usefulness of this report, we classify the 
descriptions, ranging from just providing a commented link (*) to a 
description that was created by a member of the connetion group, 
together with the notion of this member as a bridge person for further 
reference (****).

As you already said you would function as such a bridge person, if noone 
else volunteers, it would be great if you could do it and write a short 
description of the RDF WG, its goals, especially if they are in the 
context of provenance. You can just send that to me and I will include 
it in the report. There is already a small description in the wiki that 
you can simply extend, if you like.

Cheers,

Kai

I unfortunately can't join the call as I'm travelling, but I think it might make sense to wait for the outcome of this call. If someone else from RDF WG volunteers to serve as liaison then I'd happily defer to them.
