This is feedback on a Last Call Working Draft:

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

What is the relationship between EARL and TAP and xUnit XML?

http://testanything.org/wiki/index.php/TAP_at_IETF:_Draft_Standard
http://somethingaboutorange.com/mrl/projects/nose/1.0.0/plugins/xunit.html

Does EARL replicate their efforts? Do their efforts replicate EARL?
Why do TAP and xUnit XML have things that EARL doesn't? Has there been
any contact between the groups of people working on each of these
three? Are there other languages which may have a similar bearing on
EARL? Why wasn't this covered in the Requirements for the Evaluation
and Report Language (EARL) 1.0 document?*

Compare Bug 024.

* Current version:

Requirements for the Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0
W3C Working Draft 29 October 2009
http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-EARL10-Requirements-20091029/

The document says to “send comments on this Requirements for
Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0 document by 30 November
2009”. But it's just a Working Draft, not a NOTE, and it's not even in
Last Call.
