This is feedback on the following Last Call Working Drafts:

Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0 Schema
W3C Working Draft 10 May 2011
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-EARL10-Schema-20110510/

Developer Guide for Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0
W3C Working Draft 10 May 2011
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-EARL10-Guide-20110510/

There is a conflict between the two documents in the following two assertions:

(1)

“5. Exactly one Test Result, referenced by earl:result, for each Assertion
a. Exactly one date (as defined by XML Datatypes), referenced by
dct:date, for each Test Result”

§ 4.1 Conforming EARL 1.0 Reports
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-EARL10-Guide-20110510/#EARL10Reports

(2)

“It is recommended to provide additional information about the Test
Result by using the following properties from external vocabularies:

...
dct:date
Date on which the result was obtained (typically when the subject was tested).”

§ 2.5. TestResult Class
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-EARL10-Schema-20110510/#TestResult

The former, (1), says that dct:date is required, whereas the latter,
(2), says that dct:date is only recommended which implies optionality
and puts it on the same level as dct:title and dct:description which
*aren't* required in the Guide (they're given as zeroOrOne).

This bug is probably a consequence of Bug 002.
