Hi Tim,

I agree and prefer option (2), but the XG Provenance Wiki is a MediaWiki installation? 


Have you already created a RDF file by collecting all the assertions in the table? If possible, please consider adding the file to the wiki.


> Will this work replace the current table?
The table is more intuitive and accessible to a wider audience, so we can create additional resources (e.g. your RDF file) that are in sync with the table. 


Best,
Satya
