About Test Case Description and EARL

I think that with a little work from everyone here, we can define at  
least basis of a requirements document for a Test Case Description  
Schema.


* EARL

The Working Group [ERT][1] is more than interested in our work,  
because they are working on EARL, which is an RDF application to  
create Test Report, and they have to refer to individual test  
information.
They published a [EARL requirements document][2].
They are also working on a first version of the [EARL schema][3]

* Test Case Description

Dom reminded the information already available on the Wiki.

For each item of the already existing list, I would like to proceed  
step by step. Could we define these things?

* Item (Ex: identification)
     - Requirement:        (REQUIRED, OPTIONAL)
     - Syntax requirement: (for example a date with ISO format)
     - Description:        A short description of the purpose of this  
element
     - Dependencies:       Are there dependencies with another element?
     - Example:            It could be a running example with a full  
test
                           but with the important part highlighted.


BONUS: Each person who participates in this work will have a Free  
Guinness when we meet in Dublin. :))))) The more Item you do, the  
more Guinness you get.
