Hi George and Ian,

Yes, this is true.

My problem with these tests is that they require a membership. Our
implementation of a Voice browser is open source and is not being
sponsored or supported by a company. So I do not have the money to
become a member. Without the chance to earn money with my project I
would have to pay it on my own.

I have the impression that there is no room in the VoiceXML forum for
projects like ours. I do not want to start a discussion about that but I
I think that it would be good for us to leave the tests there.

Since I did not have access to the restricted area at the VoiceXML forum
I was looking for a different solution to ensure that our
implementations follows the spec and ended up with this test suite. In
fact we found a lot of open issues with it, so it helped us a lot.

Thanks
