XQuery Update Facility test reports urgently needed: XQueryX and Static Typing

Jim Melton-2
XQuery Update Facility implementors,

The XQuery Update Facility version 1.0 test suite [1] is complete and
the XML Query Working Group is awaiting test results from
implementations of the specification [2].

We currently have adequate implementation test results to progress
the specification from Candidate Recommendation to Proposed
Recommendation (the penultimate stage of processing in the W3C,
followed only by Recommendation).  However, we do not yet have any
test results from implementations that support the XML syntax for
XQuery (XQueryX) or from implementations that support the Static
Typing feature [4].  Both of these features have been marked At Risk
[5].  A feature that has been marked At Risk may be deleted from the
specification upon its publication as a Proposed Recommendation if
insufficient implementation experience of the feature has been reported.

The XML Query WG has determined that it will continue to solicit
implementation reports through 2010-03-31 (31 March 2010) from
implementations that support the XQueryX feature and/or the Static
Typing feature.  After that date, the WG will make a determination
whether to publish a Proposed Recommendation without one or both of
the features.

If either of these features are important to you, your
implementation, and/or your customer base, please consider submitting
an implementation report (test suite results) showing the results of
evaluating those features in the test suite.  If you are able to
generate test suite results for those features, but are unable or
unwilling to submit your test results publicly (e.g., because of a
corporate policy), you can submit them anonymously.  If you wish to
submit such results anonymously, please send them to the W3C Staff
Contact for the XML Query WG, Liam Quin, at [hidden email].  Liam will
strip from the submitted results all information that can identify
your organization and your implementation before incorporating them
into the collected test suite results.

We await your implementation reports!

Thanks,
    Jim
