Fwd: Last Call: EARL 1.0 Schema Working Draft

Martin J. Dürst

The Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group has published
a Last Call for HTTP in RDF. Annotea also uses properties
representing HTTP header information in RDF. So it would
be very good if somebody with Annotea experience could
review this document and send in comments.

I'm in particular wondering about the following:
- Will there be more than one namespace for HTTP header
  information (Annotea and EARL)?
- Could/should Annotea adopt the EARL properties in the future?

Regards,    Martin.

>The W3C WAI Evaluation and Repair Tools Working Group (ERT WG) [1] published two documents on 23 March 2007:
>- Evaluation And Report Language (EARL) 1.0 Schema (Last Call)
>   <http://www.w3.org/TR/EARL10-Schema/>
>- HTTP Vocabulary in RDF (Working Draft)
>   <http://www.w3.org/TR/HTTP-in-RDF/>
>These documents are of particular interest to Web developers and researchers who are interested in software-supported evaluation and validation of Web sites, and in Semantic Web technologies to support evaluations. The ERT Working Group is particularly looking for feedback on how complete the schema is, and how compatible it is with relevant metadata vocabularies in this field. Specific questions are also highlighted within the sections of the documents. Please send comments by 20 April 2007 to:

>Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) is a standardized format to express test results. The primary motivation for developing this language is to facilitate the exchange of test results between Web accessibility evaluation tools in a vendor-neutral and platform-independent format. It also provides a vocabulary that can be used for other Web quality assurance testing and validation.
>Please see the overview of EARL for an introduction and more information on the documents:
>- Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) Overview
>   <http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/earl.php>
>The EARL 1.0 Schema document defines a set of vocabulary to express test results. It meets requirements set forth for EARL [2] and incorporates comments received since the 27 September 2006 Working Draft [3]. While this document focuses on the technical details of the specification, the companion document EARL 1.0 Guide will provide a tutorial introduction to its use.
>The HTTP Vocabulary in RDF document describes a representation of the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) terms in Resource Description Framework (RDF). This updated Working Draft incorporates comments received since the 20 December 2006 Working Draft [4]. It is a companion document for EARL, and it can also be used as a separate vocabulary for other purposes.
