Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the first public release of the Open Provenance
Model Vocabulary (OPMV; http://purl.org/net/opmv/ns#). OPMV is designed
as a lightweight provenance vocabulary by implementing the provenance
community model, the Open Provenance Model [1]. It is driven by the use
cases from the data.gov.uk project in order to support publishing data
/*responsibly*/ and to achieve interoperability between provenance data
published in different systems and at different granularity.

This first release of OPMV achieved the maximum compatibility with
another OPM implementation, the Open Provenance Model Ontology (OPMO,
http://openprovenance.org/model/opmo), which implements OPM using much
more complex OWL constructs. How the OPM terms can be mapped to other
existing provenance-related vocabularies has been analysed under a W3C
Provenance Incubator Group task force [2].
