Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the first public release of the Open Provenance 
Model Vocabulary (OPMV; http://purl.org/net/opmv/ns#). OPMV is designed 
as a lightweight provenance vocabulary by implementing the provenance 
community model, the Open Provenance Model [1]. It is driven by the use 
cases from the data.gov.uk project in order to support publishing data 
/*responsibly*/ and to achieve interoperability between provenance data 
published in different systems and at different granularity.

This first release of OPMV achieved the maximum compatibility with 
another OPM implementation, the Open Provenance Model Ontology (OPMO, 
http://openprovenance.org/model/opmo), which implements OPM using much 
more complex OWL constructs. How the OPM terms can be mapped to other 
existing provenance-related vocabularies has been analysed under a W3C 
Provenance Incubator Group task force [2].

We look forward to hearing your feedback and comments.
