Satya and prov,

My current objective is to get the set of RDF triples encoded in http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/prov/wiki/Provenance_Vocabulary_Mappings#Mappings. 

For example:

opm:Process  skos:broadMatch provenir:process ;
                         skos:narrower prv:Execution, prv:DataAcess, prv:DataCreation .

If this were in RDFa, I would have what I need.

It would be great to keep the RDF encoding in sync with the wiki table, which could be done in one of two ways:

1) Scrape the wiki table to produce the RDF.
2) Produce the wiki table (or RDFa table) from the RDF-encoded the mappings.


Would the group be interested in either of these, and, if so, which "direction" would you prefer?

These is interesting. Is there a list of current issues?

Will this work replace the current table?
