The W3C Provenance Incubator Group is announcing its first report:

	** "Requirements for Provenance on the Web" [1] **

The report describes the group's consensus on the requirements to  
support provenance in a variety of web contexts, applications, and use.
The report is based on the following documents produced by the group:

   - A proposed set of provenance dimensions to organize major issues  
for provenance on the web [2]

   - More than 30 use cases developed by the group that cover all  
those dimensions illustrating a broad range of usage of provenance [3]

   - More than 250 user and technical requirements for provenance  
motivated by those use cases [4]

The report will serve as a basis to organize a state-of-the-art survey  
on provenance.

The group welcomes comments and feedback on this report from the Web  
community.

More information about the W3C Provenance Group, including its current  
activities and future plans, is publicly available on its wiki site [5].

On behalf of the W3C Provenance Incubator Group,

Yolanda Gil, Chair
