Ah ok. I've switched to using SyntaxDev.

I see you are using an idea we had earlier of creating a 'super
manifest' that can include multiple other manifests. Currently the super
manifest uses a jena-specific namespace, however. To make it more
generic (and also a bit easier to use for us) I would like to make the
following changes:

 - the 'include' property and the 'TestSyntax' class are added to 
   the DAWG test case vocabulary; the jena-specific namespace can
   then be removed.
 - the range of the 'include' property is redefined as a single 
   Manifest URL (in your current version it's a collection which is 
   harder to process, for me at least), so the super-manifest will
   contain a 'include' property for each manifest.

If nobody objects I will implement and check in these changes.
