+ Proposed change of name for ProvDAL (François Bonnarel):

During the TCG meeting, it has been objected that the name ProvDAL was confusing. Just because in DAL WG, everything is .... DAL !!! I (FB° must confess that I think that I was the one who introduced the name Pr ovDAL , by proximity with "SimDAL". Just because SimDAL is strongly bound to a model and has a PARAMETER based interface. But actually this name (SimDAL) is very atypical in the VO and not reallly appropriate.

On the other side, everything which has a parameter-based interface, is called Simple Access Protocol in the VO (SSAP, SIAP 1 or 2, SLAP, SCS,...) thus marking an opposition with using ADQL based interface which offers much more query complexity. So after thinking to it and eliminating other bad options we made a consensus on ProvSAP for "Provenance simple access protocol"). I hope that everybody in the group is happy with that. ProvSAP and ProvTAP are easily distinguished this way.
