The XML Schema Test Suite overview document at

   http://www.w3.org/XML/2004/xml-schema-test-suite/index.html

says (among other things), a propos of the availability of
the test suite through CVS:

    Source files and CVS

     TS source files are stored and tracked in the W3C public CVS
     repository. The project is called XML-Schema-Test-Suite. As of the
     2006-11-06 release, only the metadata is currently checked in
     there for most of the contributions. As and when actual data files
     are changed from their state on release day (and as available in
     thedistribution above), they will be checked in there as well.

I think this means that it is possible to obtain a copy of the test
suite catalog by checking out the CVS directory, but not a copy of
the test suite, and that while it's possible to track the changes to
test cases by monitoring their metadata, it's not possible to
get corrected versions of test cases that change until the WG issues
a new release of the test suite.

Is that interpretation the intended one?

If so, why make it so hard to keep up with ork on the test suite?

If not, could this paragraph be replaced with something less
confusing?
