Wondering if anyone around these parts (Eric? Jeen? Simon? off the top of 
my head :-) ) is interested in reviewing the EARL LC draft, since we're 
planning on trying to use it...

Last Call: EARL 1.0 Schema Working Draft

Dear Chairs,

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 Vocabulary in RDF (Working Draft)

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:
- ERT WG public mailing list <public-wai-ert@w3.org>

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

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.
