In an attempt to make the XSD test suite a little easier to acquire
and use, for people who don't already have it and aren't already
using it, I've added a section to the test suite overview page at


with instructions for obtaining a copy of the test suite.  Essentially
it consists of a paraphrase of Henry Thompson's account of the
expected usage pattern for the test suite, in his message of 7 June
to this list:


Those who understand how things are supposed to work in their
current configuration are asked to review the new section for
factual accuracy; those who don't are asked to review it for
clarity (and optionally to try the process and see if it works for
them as they would expect it to).

One question that arises immediately for me, as I try to execute
the steps:  I'm asked for my SSH passphrase.  That's fine for me,
because I do have an SSH key on the relevant machine; what must
users do who wish to check out a read-only copy of the current
material and update it?  Are they required to get an SSH key and
have it installed, or is there a different way to invoke CVS so as
to get the data in the CVS repository without having an SSH key?

Different, that is, from the command I gave, which was 

   cvs -d dev.w3.org:/sources/public \\
      checkout -d xsts1.1 \\
