Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

I'm pleased to announce publication of:

Provenance XG Final Report
http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/XGR-prov-20101214/


For the past year, the Provenance Incubator Group worked on use cases and
requirements for provenance on the Web, providing a synthesis of the
state-of-the art, and developing a roadmap in the area of provenance and
possible recommendations for standardization efforts.

In the report, the XG highlights the importance of provenance and presents
requirements in a variety of contexts in the Web based on use cases
collected from the community. Based on these requirements and a close
examination of existing provenance work, the XG identified the need for
standard mechanisms to represent and access provenance. The group
formulated a roadmap for provenance on the Web that includes short term
and long term priorities. The group also agreed to concrete starting
points to ensure rapid progress towards a standardization effort, and
proposed a charter for a Provenance Interchange Working Group.

Congratulations to the XG. With this publication, the Provenance Incubator
Group is now closed.
