RE: proposal separating collections

If we define collections (including dictionaries) in an extension to PROV-O with a different namespace it would resolve the current issue with dual usage of prov:value in the ontology (ISSUE-363) and would read very clean.

I support the suggestion to move collections and dictionaries out of the core provenance documents and into a recommendation and extension of prov-o.

Hi All,

In our last telcon, there was an agenda item to discuss the possibility of creating a separate document around collections.

Currently, in prov-dm and particularly prov-o, collections take a lot of space to explain. This makes the documents seem unbalanced and the model seem more complicated than it is. Thus, I'm making the following

Make collections a separate document that contains both the content from prov-dm and prov-o. Collections would remain a recommendation.

What do you think?

I would like to vote on this at next week's if we have consensus.
