We have a request for the Working Group based on our initial analysis of the XML Schema Patterns for Databinding Interoperability Report [1] .

A few days ago, we provided the Working Group members with some initial feedback and questions on the test results for .Net 2.0 [2] and .Net 3.0 (WCF) [3]. That caused the Working Group to revise the test results for Net 3.0 (WCF). We thank the Working Group members for the revision.

We need to review the new report and analyze all the test results for .Net 2.0 and .Net 3.0 (WCF). Without reviewing the test results we would not be able to confirm them. Given that the test report determines the demarcation line [4] between the basic and advanced patterns, we think that vendor confirmations are important. Without vendor confirmations for the remaining toolkit vendors (in the report), we are afraid that the conclusions for those toolkits are in doubt as well.

We request the Working Group to clearly distinguish test results that have been confirmed and are to be confirmed by the respective vendors in the test report. We encourage the Working Group to reach out to all these toolkit vendors and confirm their test results.

As you know, examining each test result is a time consuming task. In the process, we will attempt to better understand the test methodology, test suite and the configurations that the Working Group used for .Net 2.0 and .Net 3.0 (WCF). We also plan to review the advanced patterns to ensure that none of those should in fact be in the basic patterns. All of these will take some time on our end as well.

Given these, we request the Working Group to extend the Last Call period by two months.
