Draft text for asking for implementation reports

From: Andy Seaborne <andy.seaborne@epimorphics.com>

Message-ID: <4F32EF01.1000800@epimorphics.com>
To: SPARQL Working Group <public-rdf-dawg@w3.org>
This is based on Lee's message from last time.

1/ It refers to
for the test result format.

Is that still current?

2/ Looking at the summary


dated Nov 2011 - is this current?

3/ License

Greg - can I encourage you to put a LICENSE file in the project


and a copyright/licnese hearder on SPARQLReport.pm ?


SPARQL-WG is finalizing the test suite for SPARQL 1.1  The group's hope 
is that the test suite will serve multiple purposes:

+ Provide a basis for testing new and existing SPARQL implementations to 
promote interoperability
+ Aid implementers in determining the expected behaviour of various 
constructs in the language

SPARQL-WG will also use reports as the basis for generating an 
implementation report for SPARQL.

We ask implementers to attempt to run the test suite and report results 
to the working group.


A README describes the vocabularies used to describe and structure of 
the SPARQL 1.1 tests in manifest files:


This is an incremental update on the test framework used for SPARQL 1.0, 
adding testing mechanism for update, entailment and federated query.

An overview page provides a human-readable description of the approved
tests, as well as links to archives of the collected test materials for 


The implementation report will look like:


and is based on the EARL vocabulary to report results of running tests 
against an implementation. (EARL is an RDF schema for reporting test 
results produced by the W3C Evaluation and Repair Tools working group.)


While we'd appreciate it if implementers could report results in this 
EARL format, we'd be glad to receive implementation reports in other 
formats as well.

Please direct questions about the test suite to the working group 
comments mailing list public-rdf-dawg-comments@w3.org. Test results can 
be sent to the list as well.

	whoever sends it
	on behalf of SPARQL-WG
