Hi,

Reminder, a while ago the QA Working Group published a WG Note called "Test Metadata":
  <http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/NOTE-test-metadata-20050914/>

Dominique Hazael-Massieux (from QA Working Group) also wrote a draft schema based on this Note:
  <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2006Mar/0023>

Since then, there have been a couple of responses on this work:
  <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2006Mar/0029>
  <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2006Apr/0000>
  <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2006Jun/0000>

We should also look at this schema and review the following:

* How well does this schema capture Web accessibility evaluation requirements?
* How well does EARL 1.0 align to this schema and vice-versa?
* Is this a potential vocabulary to reuse when developing test samples for WCAG 2.0?

Please have a look at this schema and send relevant comments to the ERT list (you are also welcome to send comments to QA list directly if they are out of scope for ERT).

Regards,
  Shadi
