			   RDF Parser Tests

I've been working on a testpad for RDF parsers and now have something
to announce.  This is a Redland RDF application (written in Perl)
that takes the RDF files announced by Art Barstow from
  http://www.w3.org/2000/10/rdf-tests/
and uses the various parsers that I have available to me in Redland.

The results are the number of generated statements or an error.,
which are then merged into one big RDF graph along with the
'expected' results (rather uncertain how reliable these are - I wrote
these by hand) and merged with some schema information.

The final graph can be viewed in various slices - comparing all
parsers, looking at one, checking a single test response etc.

Try it out at http://ilrt.org/discovery/swsw/pt

So if you are an RDF parser writer, how do you participate?
Relatively easy.  Run your parser on the tests (you can download them
as zips from http://www.w3.org/2000/10/rdf-tests/) and generate a
file like the schema sort-of documented here:
  http://ilrt.org/discovery/2001/03/parser-tests/
or take a look at one of the live data files below
  http://ilrt.org/discovery/swsw/pt/inputs/parsers/

Then publish that file on the web and let me know where it so I can
mirror it and merge it with the other data.

There are lots of ways to improve this - be gentle on day #1
