The W3C has decided to reassign resources from maintenance of
the SiRPAC RDF validation service:

 http://www.w3.org/RDF/Implementations/SiRPAC/

to other new work.

Consequently, this service will be stopped on or around September 
4 and requests to that service will be redirected to the W3C's
new RDF service:

 http://www.w3.org/RDF/Validator

The SiRPAC parser and the on-line validation service have
been a valuable resource to the RDF community for more
than three years.  Janne Saarela, then an intern at W3C, wrote
SiRPAC as a "clean room" implementation of RDF from drafts of
the written specification and his questions back to the document
editors helped make the final specification better.  Janne also
implemented the first on-line service around SiRPAC.  Among
other things, this allowed other producers of RDF metadata to
see that they were producing properly formed data.  After Janne
went on to other projects, Sergey Melnik made many improvements
to the parser.  Art Barstow has also taught the SiRPAC service
a few new tricks and fixed many bugs.
