Welcome everyone to the W3C Provenance Incubator Group!

As the group's chair, I want to thank you for agreeing to participate,  
and look forward to your contributions in this area.

We were approved on September 22, and I have already heard from many  
of you as well as others about their intention to join.  We have a  
very diverse set of participants, and there are others that are in the  
process of joining.  If there are specific people that you believe  
would be good to have in the group, let me know or feel free to  
contact them directly.

For those of you who have not had experience with W3C before, W3C has  
many very useful processes and tools to manage these distributed  
collaborations, and I will try to convey them to you as I learn them  

We will use the mailing list public-xg-prov@w3.org for email  
communications.  Note that all messages sent to this list will be  
posted publicly on the web, as well as our meeting minutes and other  

Our first order of business is to set up a time to hold a weekly  
telecon.  We will do this using a W3C tool for polling.  Just fill the  
form that is posted at:


This questionnaire is open for answers until 23:59, Boston time on  
2009-10-13.  Answers received after that time may not be counted.   
Since there are many participants from Europe and the US, I only  
proposed time slots that would be sensible across all the time zones.   
Hopefully we will find a time that works for most.

Let me know if you have any questions for now.
