Re: PROV-ISSUE-7 (define-derivation): Definition for Concept 'Derivation' [Provenance Terminology]

Dear all,

Over the last week, we debated the notion of resource (PROV-ISSUE-1),
one of the concepts identified in the charter as core to a provenance
data model. It would be good to discuss the notion of derivation.

Do we agree with the illustration of derivation [1]:
in the example, chart c1 is a derivation of data set d1.
Are there other interesting illustrations?

Is derivation relating resources/resource representations/resource
representation states?
