The minutes of today's telecon are at:


Three major items to highlight:

* Any further comments on the proposed organization of use cases  
should be posted to the mailing list.  It looks like we have nicely  
converged on a small set of exemplar cases for each dimension.  Thanks  
to all who contributed to the (!!!!) 31 use cases, they cover very  
broad issues in provenance and people outside the group are already  
reading them.  We need to move on and close the work on use cases  
ASAP, so if you intend to contribute cases or comments please do so  
promptly.  Please try to work with the current structure and make any  
changes be localized at this point.  We will no longer discuss use  
cases at the telecons.

* We are now officially starting the next activity of the XG, which is  
to articulate requirements (see our XG timeline at http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Timeline 
.  This should be in the form of a self-contained document (ie, a wiki  
page) with 2-3 editors, should be done by the end of January.  Thanks  
to Paul Groth, Paolo Missier, Satya Sahoo, and Jun Zhao for  
volunteering to be editors of the document.  They will have off-line  
discussions to prepare a skeleton of the document, with names of  
people that expected to contribute to each section.  This will be  
discussed at our next telecon.  If you have suggestions please contact  

* Regarding the face to face meeting, it looks like there are no major  
objections to holding it Sun-Mon April 25-26. I will move forward with  
those dates then, and will let you all know when the arrangements are  

Talk to you all next week!
