I have a few questions regarding interop I'd like to resolve on  
today's call, based on the latest editors test cases draft:

http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmlsig-interop-doc/testcases.html

1. Shouldn't Sean be added as Author and Editor?

2. Section 2.2 Directories
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmlsig-interop-doc/ 
testcases.html#Introduction.RecommendationRefs

Why do we have two directory structures that appear to both have  
c14n11 test cases?

http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/c14n11/

and

http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmldsig/

Shouldn't all inputs be the same for c14n11 test cases, and the  
outputs be both an XML output of c14n11 and a signature output?

Do we have replicated or different cases in these two directories?

3. What is the status of the following incomplete sections of the  
document, and what is the plan for completing?

Section 3.3, Implicit/Explicit rules
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmlsig-interop-doc/ 
testcases.html#TestCases-DefaultCan

Section 3.4 XPointers
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmlsig-interop-doc/ 
testcases.html#TestCases-SchemaBasedXPointers

Section 3.5 DNs
http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmlsig-interop-doc/ 
testcases.html#TestCases-DistinguishedName

4. What is the status of Appendix A testing? Section 3.2.4.2

http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmlsig-interop-doc/ 
testcases.html#XMLBASE_ANNEXA

  Do the test cases make sense?

Which version of Appendix A are we testing, the version in C14N11 CR,
http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/CR-xml-c14n11-20070621/#appendix

the proposed revision ,
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2007Jun/ 
att-0050/Apendix_20060625.html

or an interpretation of what it should do? Is this appendix clear?

Do we have any proposed changes to Appendix A based on test development?

5. Are the xml:space, xml:lang, xml:id and xml:base tests complete  
and what is confidence in correctness of tests and ability to implement?

http://www.w3.org/2007/xmlsec/interop/xmlsig-interop-doc/ 
testcases.html#TestCases-Can-XMLAttributes

6. Who is assembling regression tests based on XML Signature 1.0  
interop? What is status of this work?

http://www.w3.org/Signature/2001/04/05-xmldsig-interop.html

7. What is missing from the test cases? Any interop concerns to discuss?


regards, Frederick
