Apologies for cross posting, I believe this may be interesting for work
related to markup validation and quality assurance.

Dear WAI Interest Group (IG) Participants,

WAI invites you to comment on the Last Call Working Draft of EARL and
related documents published 10 May 2011:
      * Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0 Schema - Last Call
Working Draft
      * Developer Guide for Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0 -
updated Working Draft
      * HTTP Vocabulary in RDF 1.0 - updated Working Draft
      * Representing Content in RDF 1.0 - updated Working Draft
      * Pointer Methods in RDF 1.0 - updated Working Draft

EARL provides a way to combine results from different web accessibility
evaluation tools, and to share results between tools. For example, with
EARL an authoring tool can get accessibility information from an
evaluation tool. EARL is a machine-readable format for expressing test
results in a vendor-neutral and platform-independent format. It is
introduced in:
      EARL Overview

WAI encourages feedback from developers and researchers who are
interested in software-supported evaluation and validation of websites,
and by those who are interested in Semantic Web technologies for content
description, annotation, and adaptation. Please send comments to the
publicly-archived list:
      [hidden email]
      by *10 June 2011*

Status of documents:

EARL 1.0 Schema is intended to become a W3C Recommendation. The other
four documents are currently planned to become W3C Notes. The difference
between W3C Recommendations and W3C Notes -- and Last Call, Candidate
Recommendation, and other development stages -- is described in:
       How WAI Develops Accessibility Guidelines through the W3C Process

The Working Group believes is has addressed all comments received so far
and is looking for feedback, especially on EARL 1.0 Schema before it
progresses to Candidate Recommendation Working Draft. The "Status of
this Document" sections of the publications include specific questions
and guidance for providing comments.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for
your comments.

Feel free to circulate this message to other lists; please avoid
cross-postings where possible.
