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.
