Stuart Sutton, Managing Director, DCMI, calls on the Dublin Core community to comment on a mapping from Dublin Core terms to the PROV provenance ontology.
His call reads:
The DCMI Metadata Provenance Task Group  is collaborating with the W3C Provenance Working Group  on a mapping from Dublin Core terms to the PROV provenance ontology , currently a W3C Proposed Recommendation. More precisely, the document describes a partial mapping from DCMI Metadata Terms  to the PROV-O OWL2 ontology  — a set of classes and properties usable for representing and interchanging information about provenance. Numerous terms in the DCMI vocabulary provide information about the provenance of a resource. Translating these terms into PROV relates this information explicitly to the W3C provenance model.
The mapping is currently a W3C Working Draft. The final state of the document will be that of a W3C Note, to be published as part of a suite of documents in support of a W3C Recommendation for provenance interchange .
DCMI would like to point to the W3C Note as a DCMI Recommended Resource and therefore encourages the Dublin Core community to provide feedback and take part in the finalization of the mapping.
The deadline for all comments is 7 April 2013. We recommend that comments be provided directly to the public W3C list for comments: firstname.lastname@example.org , ideally with a Cc: to DCMI’s dc-provenance list . Comments sent only to the dc-provenance list will be summarized on the W3C list and addressed, and discussions on the W3C list will be summarized back on the dc-provenance list when appropriate.
